    "If someone invites you to edit a file in Google Docs today, don’t open it — it may be spam from a phishing scheme that’s been spreading quickly this afternoon. As detailed on Reddit, the attack sends targets an emailed invitation from someone they may know, takes them to a real Google sign-in screen, then asks them to “continue to Google Docs.” But this grants permissions to a (malicious) third-party web app that’s simply been named “Google Docs,” which gives phishers access to your email and address book."

    Seeing as many of you use Google accounts, and with this being very widespread, we advise you to take caution, especially with many of you using the same email for your Minecraft or forums accounts.

    Be safe!

    Thanks, I honestly wouldn't have known. I would have assumed it from from ulmc staff or such.
