GMail / GTalk Phishing Scam

ZDnet is reporting a phishing scam targeting users of Gmail and Gtalk services. The scam provides an “account termination” warning and asks users to click a link to a fake site that asks for login credentials.

What to do?

  1. NEVER give your login credentials to fix an “account problem”
  2. Run Google Apps Premier Edition and activate the Google Message Security (Postini) service. Messages like these get caught.
