GMail is going through some rough times. First there was a major outage, since corrected, and now hot on the heels of that problem comes reports of a major phishing scam that is circulating through GTalk. Apparently a message directing you to a video also asks for you to enter your GMail login info and that’s where the trouble starts. Your address books and contacts are left wide open, and of course folks then start receiving the phishing link then gets sent from your email address.
If you think you’ve been affected you should change your GMail login info.
