Do you have a Gmail email account?

Then take a few minutes to make yourself aware of a new and very effective Phishing technique that is targeting Gmail accounts!

 

Another exceptionally deceptive phishing system focusing on Gmail and different administrations has been picking up notoriety amid the previous year among aggressors. In the course of recent weeks, there have been reports of experienced specialized clients being hit by this.

This assault is as of now being utilized to target Gmail clients and is likewise focusing on different administrations.

The way the assault works is that an assailant will send an email to your Gmail account. That email may originate from somebody you know who has had their own account hacked utilizing this procedure. It might likewise incorporate something that resembles a picture of a connection you perceive from the sender and likely may have received from the send in the past.

You tap on the picture, anticipating that Gmail should give you a preview of the picture as is the usual. And rather than that, another tab opens up and you are " asked by Gmail to sign in once more". You look at the area bar and you see accounts.google.com in there... it will likely have this text

data:text/html,https://accounts.google.com

 

take note, the key preceding text that SHOULD NOT BE THERE: data:text/html

You are redirected to a page that looks exactly like a normal login page. HOWEVER, once you complete this second login, you account has been hacked and they hacker, immediately captures your login credentials and logs on to your account and repeats the same process by sending an email out to all your friends with a  gmail account in the same structure that you would have received.

These hackers are extremely smart, so for example, they hacked into an athletes account and then found a picture of a team schedule and used that and sent it out to the rest of the team with the title along the lines of updated team schedule. 

Aside from doing this email, they will also quickly reset your account password to lock you out and then go about wrecking havoc on other accounts and services you may have with google.

 

HOW YOU SHOULD PROTECT YOURSELF!!!

1)Stop thinking you are too smart to fall for this as many highly technical and savvy people already have so be aware.

2) when you are signing into your google account, be aware that the website address should be 

 https://accounts.google.com.... 

There should always be a green lock pictured before and it should have the s and only accounts.google.com

If any of these are missing, STOP immediately and close page.

 

Other general tips,

a)get in the habit of changing your password every couple of months,

b) if you are unsure if your account has been compromised, you can check your login activity to find out of someone else is signing into your account.
