A recent bug found in Gmail has allowed people to spoof email addresses (pretend to be someone else) or send an anonymous email.

This bug is a gold mine for phishing emails as the emails can look so realistic that you would actually think that it’s Apple asking you to verify your account or Bob sharing a file with you from your trip to new mexico.download this file that Bob has shared with you.

So while this bug is being fixed ensure to take that extra time to check any suspicious emails you recieve to make sure they’re really from who they say they are.

It only takes a few clicks of the mouse to become a victim of cyber-crime!
