ICYMI, yesterday Gmail was attacked by a huge phishing scam that has now affected up to a million Gmail accounts.
It starts with an email that looks like it’s from someone you know. There’s a Google doc in the email. Opening that doc can lead to your email information being hacked. If you opened the document, you were asked to give permission for it to access your account. Then it sent itself out to everyone in your address book.
Google started investigating yesterday.
We are investigating a phishing email that appears as Google Docs. We encourage you to not click through, & report as phishing within Gmail.— Gmail (@gmail) May 3, 2017
They’ve since been able to shut the attack down, but since it’s not quite clear what sort of information that phishing attack could have grabbed if you did open this email, it’s still a good idea to make some changes to your account. Especially your password.
