Gmail users beware!

Postby NYBF » Wed May 03, 2017 2:46 pm

I just got one of these emails. Thought better about opening it. But from reading some of the comments, it looks like this is going to be a pretty big problem soon.

Jesus ****! I hate these people. I haven't received a Google Doc, but if I do, at least now I know and can protect myself.

I got an email, but it was from someone I hadn't heard from in a L O N G time. Immediately a red flag went up. I did some searching and stumbled upon that thread talking about it. I am worried, however, because my agency uses Gmail. And the vast majority of people here are dumb. I sent out a warning right away, but I'm still expecting some to click it.

Thanks for the PSA

Someone should let John Podesta know. :P

Apparently, Google has fixed the issue...
