    Hi,

    Yesterday i logged into my gmail account and was surprised to see 213 bounced emails. The issue was somebody logged into my account from "poland IP" and has sent 1000 emails from my gmail account. They sent viagra, valium ,pharmacy etc.. emails to all my contacts on that gmail account.

    I changed password of that account to be safe. Later i checked the content of those emails.

    It was a blank email with this link

    Code:
    http://docs.google.com/View?id=ddd5bq9h_28svcvrwcs
    I got that email in my other accounts and it was in my Yahoo mails "INBOX"

    yea...i saw a very similar method a few months back first w/o the hacking, it was done by a Russian spammer, but he used google images, this way they can easily hit the inbox and since then you can upload any kind of file to google docs, they're using it as well for spamming purposes
    it's a little backfire to google again
