Tech-Savvy Gmail users Fooled by Sophisticated Phishing Techniques #gmail #cybersecurity #phishing

How does it work?

The hacker will first send you an email, which includes an attachment, according to Mark Maunder, the CEO of WordPress security plugin Wordfence. When you click on the attachment to preview it, a new tab opens to what looks like a Gmail login page.

However it isn’t genuine. If you enter your email and password, hackers will have stolen your credentials and have full access to all of your emails.
