Gmail users hit by phishing chat attack
Posted on 25 February 2009.
Gmail users should be on their guard against phishing attacks following news that the email system has been the target of a campaign that spread via the Google Talk instant messaging chat system.

Samples intercepted by SophosLabs reveal that the unsolicited instant messages urge users to "check out this video" by clicking on a link via the TinyURL service.† The link, however, directs users to a website called ViddyHo - which asks surfers to enter their Gmail usernames and passwords.†


TinyURL has now blacklisted the site, meaning that the current link structure will no longer work.†
