Y-Not Tech Services have just heard of a widespread Phishing attack that is targeting users of Google’s Gmail platform. This attack may appear to come from someone you know since it is taking over people’s accounts. This is how it is spread.
The attack will appear to be a simple Google Doc that has been sent to you (Again, possibly by someone you know). If you click the link, your account can be taken over by the attackers, and the phishing e-mail will be sent out to your address book.
Here is a statement from Google:
Always use caution when opening e-mails and links. If you have any doubts or concerns, DO NOT OPEN THE E-MAIL. Be extra cautious as this will be spreading. If I learn more, I will update you.
UPDATE FROM GOOGLE:
Y-Not Tech Services is happy to assist anyone who may feel they were affected by this or any other malicious activity.
