Default Google Docs Users Targeted by Sophisticated Phishing Scam

If you are a Google Docs / Google Drive user, you should probably read this article. The fake page is actually hosted on Google's servers and is served over SSL, making the page even more convincing. The scammers have simply created a folder inside a Google Drive account, marked it as public, uploaded a file there, and then used Google Drive's preview feature to get a publicly-accessible URL to include in their messages. ng_scam/
