Be Careful of Phishing Attack to Gain Google Credentials
Researchers over at security firm Symantec have come across a new advanced phishing attack aimed at stealing your Google credentials. The new attack specifically targets Google Docs and Google Drive users. An email will hit your inbox with a subject line of “Documents” or similar, claiming there is an ‘important document’ stored in Google Docs that you can open by clicking the included link. By clicking, you are directed to a Google Docs login page where you are required to input your username and password. The page looks just like the official login page Google uses when you have not signed in for an extended period of time.
