ALERT : Everyone's Getting Blasted With This Google Docs Scam
This has nothing to do specifically with Groups.io. There's a phishing attack going on right now
that's apparently fairly widespread, involving Google Docs invites. If you receive an unexpected
invite to a Google Doc, don't click it, delete it.
As a reminder, and in general, you should turn on two factor authentication for all your accounts,
including your email account and your Groups.io account.
Nine employees at Brookwood School just got targeted with the same malicious email disguised
as a shared Google Doc. (The listserv doesn't allow me to attach a screenshot)
The emails all came from someone the recipient knew. Mousing-over the link for "Open in Docs"
reveals that it DOES APPEAR to point to Google BUT buried in the link is a "redirect" to a
malicious website. I haven't dug into all of them but so far the redirect points to these domains:
Apparently we're not the only school being targeted.
These universities just posted information about the same malicious emails:
