Exclamation Safer Computing 04/05/2017

This spam email:
- Uses the existing Google login system
- Uses the name "Google Docs"
- Is only detectable as fake if you happen to click "Google Docs" whilst granting permission
- Replicates itself by sending itself to all your contacts
- Bypasses any 2 factor authentication / login alerts
- Will send scam emails to everyone you have ever emailed

The scam should now be resolved, good job on the speedy resolution Google!

I too know the feeling but, I think it is better to know than not to know. Being aware makes one take care and that, for me, is what passing on these notification is all about.

You do a great job in that respect Wally and long may it contine. I always find these posts interesting and informative. If you appreciate and understand the online dangers and pitfalls at least you can react accordingly. Your posts help to provide that understanding.

Regards,

John
