Hi all,

There's a google docs spam/scam going around the internet right now.
Basically, it asks the person to view a Google Doc that has been shared. It
will then ask for you to authenticate and commence sending spam messages to
all contacts.

See screenshot for what it looks like.

If you think you have clicked on it, you confirm by doing the following:


   1. Open 'My Account' in google (click on the circle in the top right of
   your screen)
   2. Select 'Connected apps & sites' on the top left of the screen (under
   the category 'Sign-in & security').
   3. Click on 'MANAGE APPS'.
   4. If something called 'Google Drive' appears there, click to expand it
   and select 'REMOVE'. This is not the *real* Google Drive.
   5. Then change your kerberos password:

If you have any questions or think you might be affected, please send an
email to support at cs.bu.eu.
