WordFence recently issued an Alert to all GMail Email users. The notice follows:
This morning we are publishing an important advisory about an unusually effective Gmail phishing attack that is being used to steal login credentials.
This attack is fooling even experienced technical users and appears to be having a wide impact. In light of this, we made the decision to send out this bulletin, even though it is outside our usual WordPress security focus.
In this morning’s post we include a detailed description of how the attack works, what to do about it, why it is so effective and why Google has said they won’t protect against this attack.
We also recently updated our Learning Center article on how to choose a WordPress hosting service, for the security minded. So you may want to give that a read.
