Google working to address Docs scam

By  | 

There are numerous news reports of a widespread phishing attack making the rounds on the internet.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln sent out an email to warn students, saying, "the scam uses a legitimate Google Docs invitation to share and edit a document. The link appears to be a legitimate Google Docs URL address, however it connects to malicious content hosted in a Google folder."

Google has also responded to the reports and says they are working to resolve the issue.

However, for the time being, if you get an invitation to edit a Google Doc today, it may be in your best interest to not click it and instead, report it.

The Google Docs Twitter account also tweeted about the scam. You can see those tweets below.
