I received this info in an email from an IT tech I have used in the past:

The email:

We are emailing you to alert you of a recent phishing attack going around regarding Google Docs links. You may or may not already know, so we wanted to alert you as many use Google services. We have published a short blog post regarding the incident as well as the steps you can take to further protect your accounts should you become a victim.

You can find our blog post here:

We recommend that you let your friends & family know about the recent phishing attack going around so that they can stay vigilant.

NOTE: This email is only a general security advisory and not an attempt to sell you anything.

GOOGLE DOCS PHISHING – BE CAREFUL!

May 4, 2017 | News | 0 |


Many may already know there’s a Google Docs phishing email going around containing a link from what appears to be someone you may know. We have gotten numerous messages to our company mailboxes containing these links.

If you’re not familiar with what phishing is, phishing is a method where a malicious attacker uses a crafted web page, link or similar to try to trick a user into providing their login information. When this happens, the malicious user then has your login information and access to anything those credentials are being used for.

We would like to alert our customers of this phishing scam going around and how you can protect your account with us should you become compromised.

  1. Use different passwords for all services
  2. Utilize strong, complex passwords
  3. Enable two-factor authentication when available

Be careful out there!
