There's another new scam this time it's targeting Gmail accounts.

The scam is pretty elementary in that a hacker sends an e-mail with an attachment. That e-mail could come from someone you know, who has already had their account hacked. When you click on the attachment it will re-direct you to what looks like the Gmail login page, but it's a fake.

If you enter your email and password on the fake page you'll be handing access to your emails right to the hacker.

There is an easy way to protect yourself; first is to change your password, or you can enable the two-step authentication to give more security, also always check for a lock icon next to the address bar, this indicates that it's a secure website.
