Post news Report RSS Important Information – Google Docs Phishing Attack

As you have probably heard, a Google Docs phishing attack started late yesterday(5/4). This was a sophisticated phishing scam, sent through Gmail and mimicking Google Docs, may have stolen information from thousands of Google accounts. Google has been quick to address the problem, but for customers who were victimized by the attack, you will need to protect yourself with extra precautions.

Breaking It Down: How It Works

The phishing attack is initiated through an email invitation to edit a Google Doc. The message appears to have been sent from people stored in your contact list. Once the link is clicked, you are sent to a webpage requesting permission to access emails and contacts. The Google Docs request looks very much like a legitimate one, which is how it has been so successful. The attacker’s account was shut down within an hour, however it appears a large number of Gmail accounts may have been victimized within that short period of time.

As a precaution, any users that use a Gmail email address are encouraged to change their Frontwire Studios password on the Account Management Portal. We also recommend enabling 2-factor authentication on your account. For detailed information on how to enable 2-factor authentication, please check out the following article: Support.frontwirestudios.com

Should you need help enabling 2-factor authentication, and/or you believe your Frontwire Studios account may have been compromised, please open a support ticket a Support.frontwirestudios.com
