Email Alert: Don't Open Suspicious Google Docs Email

A phishing email disguised as a contact attempting to share a file from Google Docs is spreading like rapid fire. If that's the malicious app that's gotten access to your account after you clicked on the link it should have a recent 'Authorization Time.' Now, click on that Google Docs app and click 'Remove'. If you already have Google Docs open, it happens without you having to do anything. If you just opened the email but did not click the link you are nearly certainly not infected.

"Considering how indiscriminate the targeting is, it doesn't seem to be anything else but trying to exploit a weakness in how end users can be tricked into granting access to their Google accounts", said Alvaro Hoyos, CISO at OneLogin.

Google said it shut down a massive phishing scam that targeted users of its documents service on Wednesday. We encourage you to not click through, & report as phishing within Gmail.
