There's a seemingly harmless email going around that can cause some pretty serious repercussions.
Phishing attack going around that pretends to be a Google Doc from a contact https://t.co/gFISJ3FyuR— Conor Skelding (@conorskelding) May 3, 2017
Basically, an email will come to you that APPEARS to be someone trying to share important information with you via Google Docs.
It'll look a little something like this
If a stranger tries to share a Google Doc with you: do not accept it. It’s not actually GD. It is a rogue app trying to access your account pic.twitter.com/RiSYX7DoJK— The Register (@TheRegister) May 3, 2017
If you click on it, it will try to access all of the information in your Google account, which could of course have some far-reaching implications depending on how much you store online.
So if you get an unexpected Google Doc invite...DO NOT OPEN IT.
Delete it immediately.
And then make a joke about it, which is also happening on Twitter a lot today.
