May 4, 2017 Google Drive Phishing Scam -- A massive phishing scam targeting Google accounts is sweeping through the internet. Reports widely reference an origin e-mail address of “hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh@mailinator.com,” with others copied on the message. If you have clicked on the link, go to your Google account's page (https://myaccount.google.com/permissions) where you can manage the permissions you've granted to apps (or go through the whole Google Security Checkup). Then locate the "Google Doc" app. The malicious app should have a recent "Authorization Time." Now, click on the recent Google Docs app and click "Remove".  For more information on avoiding phishing scams visit: https://huit.harvard.edu/all-about-phishing
