Google Docs Phishing Scam
Update (Wednesday, May 3, 2017 @ 4:19pm): Additional information about the Google Docs phishing scam can be found at TheVerge.com (Google Docs users hit with sophisticated phishing attack).
A phishing scam was launched against Google accounts this afternoon. To you, this will appear as an email message with the subject of: “XXXXX has shared a document on Google Docs with you” with a blue button to “Open in Docs”. DO NOT click on the button and DO NOT allow access to your Bates email account. We are currently looking into the resolution for those who have already clicked that button.
