A recent phishing attack targeting Googles Gmail users has been discovered and quickly patched by researchers.
The hackers sent spam phishing emails to users, claiming to be an official Google email. The email contained code that allowed the attacker to reset the users gmail password remotely and without detection.
The threat of resetting passwords is a dangerous one, especially within an email service. Not only does this give a hacker full access to your personal emails but also gives potential access to other apps, programs and sites of which further password resets could be initiated.
The flaw was patched by Google within 10 days of its exposure.
