    Short Bytes: Gmail phishing is one of most common methods used by hackers to compromise the online security of naive users. But, a recent Gmail phishing attack, uncovered by Wordfence, mimics your past conversations and attachments, succeeding in fooling even the tech-savvy netizens. To counter this attack, users should make sure to verify the https:// protocol and hostname in the address bar.

    This is some really serious shit and whoever did this exactly knows what he's doing. Even worse is that it's god damn hard to prevent this by spam filters if the emails are coming from someone who you already had contact too.
