Gmail phishing attack

Recommended Posts

If you have a gmail account, you should probably read this article. (I gather that anyone who has an Android device will also have a Google account.)


Briefly: you get an email from someone you know, with what looks like an attachment. You click on that, and you get taken to a fake Google sign-in web page. You can tell it's fake because of what's in the address bar of your browser. The real one reads: " https: // accounts.google.com.... " but the fake one starts: " data: text / html, https:// accounts.google.com ...."

But how many of us actually look at the address bar? Apparently, even very techy people have been caught out by this one.
