FYI: #Alert Anything Linked to Compromised Gmail Accounts is at Risk!

Warning! Don't Click that Google Docs Link You Just Received in Your Email

Warning! Don’t Click that Google Docs Link You Just Received in Your Email

Did someone just share a random Google Doc with you?

First of all — Do not click on that Google Doc link you might have just received in your email and delete it immediately — even if it’s from someone you know.I, my colleagues at The Hacker News, and even people all around the Internet, especially journalists, are receiving a very convincing OAuth phishing email, which says that the person [sender] “has shared a document on Google Docs with you.

Once you clicked the link, you will be redirected to a page which says, Google Docs would like to read, send and delete emails, as well access to your contacts,asking your permission to “allow” access.If you allow the access, the hackers would immediately get permission to manage your Gmail account with access to all your emails and contacts, without requiring your Gmail password.
