A Flaw In Google Drive Is Being Used To Sending Messages With Dodgy Links

A flaw in Google drive is being used to send messages with dodgy links.

Are you able to recognize spam emails when you get some? and are you able to tell if a fraudster has sent you the wrong email? The problem with this email that is being used is that it’s sent directly from Google so it looks legitimate but it’s really not.

It’s quite a smart scam used by proper fraudsters.

The spammers have actually designed a way where the emails and push notifications are sent from Google so it looks quite believable. The messages are then used to invite people to download and view the document attached. If you happen to click on the link you will end up on a malicious site and thereafter you may be exposed to hackers.

You may be thinking the email will end up in spam?

- Ad-

No, what makes this email so legitimate is that it doesn’t end up in spam but instead makes it to your actual inbox. These hackers/scammers work their way through a huge list of Gmail accounts. This has been confirmed by scores of people reporting similar versions of the attack in recent weeks.
