Google Phishing Attack: Gmail users hit by Massive Email Scam Sweeping Web


http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/google-phishing-emails-attack-gmail-scam-link-doc-invitation-hack-a7716581.html
An email with that senders email address was automatically put into my spam folder yesterday.
I need to check the spam folder since I quite often receive emails from people not on my contact list.
However checking what's in the spam folder and opening emails from unknown people are two different things.
For me, a lot of research goes into opening anything that's in the spam folder and this email certainly didn't live up to the requirements I've set to open something in the spam folder.

If you did fall for this, you can reverse it. Here's how: https://lifehacker.com/how-to-secure-your-online-accounts-by-revoking-access-f-1794631133

I didn't get this email at all and I didn't fall for this. I am always cautions of who and what comes in my mail. If it's from an unknown sender it automatically goes in my spam folder. Thanks for the link

Mozilla: Future of a secure Internet Infrastructure at stake :

The gutting of Internet's privacy in return for quite some lobbying sums:

It is not developing into the right direction for end-user security, folks.  :D
It could not have been better boom times for elitist globalists however.  ;D

Change your Whatsapp settings, else all your private data are out in the street:
Read:  https://www.allaboutphones.nl/whatsapp-privacy-hackers/ %
and play and discover: https://github.com/tgalal/yowsup
Facebook's reaction: they know about the insecurity features and it does not really bother them....
and then it does bother some and then they choose signal over Whatsapp.
