Hackers are using Google Docs as another dangerous platform for phishing attacks

Hackers are using Google Docs as another dangerous platform for phishing attacks

Hackers are currently using the Google Docs platform as a platform to host targeted phishing attacks by sending redirect links. An article published on the Avanan blog shows how Google Docs can be used as a tool to prevent phishing attacks against other members of the community. The email will be sent to the user via the link.

The excuse for submission is that the topic is a downloadable document provided on Google Docs, and users are encouraged to download and read in their spare time. To make matters worse, when you click on a link, the website below matches Google Docs, adding more false legitimacy to the hacker’s phishing attempt. The landing page URL will prompt the user to download the “document”.

When users log in to a login portal like Google, they blush. People can add their own credentials when trying to disclose personal information. Although tech-savvy people find it difficult to succumb to such attacks, especially because robots are easily distinguished by harsh, inhuman conversations, copying Google documents and logging in to the portal is a ball game.

Or those who are not familiar with the online space can easily become the victim of an attack. The legality of the created websites is strengthened by the creation of them by Google Docs. All the hacker has to do is write HTML similar to Google Docs. And upload it to Google Drive.

After uploading to Google Drive, HTML will be automatically converted to a document preview webpage. From there, the hacker opened the HTML code in Google Docs. This is where things pile up. A bit technical. By using the existing web embedding and publishing features in Google Docs, you will more or less generate a URL that hackers will use and send to unsuspecting users.
