Scammers Send Malicious Links Via Google Drive


Hundreds of thousands of Google Drive users are receiving malicious links from cybercriminals. This is after scammers are found to be leveraging a legitimate Google Drive collaboration feature to trick users into clicking on malicious links. Attackers are abusing Google Drive’s legitimate collaboration feature, which allows users to create push notifications or emails that invite people to share a Google doc. Because they are sent via Google Drive, the notifications come from Google’s no-reply email address, making them appear more legitimate. Other iterations of the attack are sent via email. Google is currently working on new security measures for detecting Google Drive spam.
