      GOOGLE DOCS PHISHING CAMPAIGN- Google Docs Phishing Campaign is Frighteningly Accurate -

      By Gary Davis on Mar 21, 2014

       

      Gmail users beware: a very convincing, very deceitful, phishing scam has been making its way around the Internet. The scam targets Google Doc and Google Drive users with a lookalike login page designed to steal your username and password. With 425 million active monthly Gmail users, these “phishermen” have cast quite a large net. Before […]

       

      When Microsoft (Bill Gates) came into the world with strong force.... he and MS were chastised by many. Most googlers today still chastise MS for its existence mainly because of its dominance in the world, yet without it.... technology would be nothing like it is today.

       

      My personal opinion... Google has gone far beyond the power of Microsoft while using MS's back as a launch pad and its security concerns seems to outweigh those of MS. Google also makes millions selling its customers personal information simply by making a one sentence clause to get past the constitutional rights of the people... if you want to use google tools, you must give up your rights to your personal information like Facebook and others have also chosen to do, (pretty much in a nut shell anyway).

      I think the whole Target breach was due to both technology and human error. How many businesses require third party vendors to use a high end secure products for their technology? I read an article that said an involved third party vendor of Target was using the free version of Malwarebytes for its security protection on the devices. Who does that? Things that make you go  hhhmmmmm!

       

      Another thought, with all the talk of another country controling the internet, what does that mean for the USA cyber security? After all, don't most of our threats come from other countries? I hope one of the bloggers does a piece on this. I would love to know from an intelligent source and not a political warfare, what this means to the USA people and their security and privacy. Are we making American's more vulnerable to other countries up front?
