Google Docs phishing attack

by | Aug 1, 2017 | Security

As some of you may already be aware of, there has been a large scale email phishing attack that impersonates a Google Docs request. Although it may appear that the email requests are coming from a known sender or domain, they are using techniques to spoof those addresses. These emails contain hyperlinks or files that contain Trojans, worms, or other malicious executable files that can hijack your system and potentially your network if gone unnoticed. Please take extra effort to watch for any emails you receive that might have a subject line “You have received a new document from [email protected]” with a sender of “Google Documents”, or unknown sender. If you do receive any emails that match this description, do not open any attachments or follow any links. If you have any concerns, or questions please reach out to our support team.
