    Fake Google doc message

    Probably old story, but it just happened to me.
    I got the mail from a known google contact::
    You have just received a document via Google Doc.

    Click here to view the document online its very important.
    I was stupid enough to click to the link and I was asked to log in again into google account, which I did.
    I am an idiot.
    And found no new doc file.

    Next day I think all my contacts from google account got the same phishing mail.

    I changed the password on Google mail account.

    Now my question is - was that enough or I may expect more troubles??


    Am I lucky because hotmail and yahoo mails are my "main" accounts?

    thanks

    You are probably OK, but your friends will be less than pleased.
    I'd change the password again to be sure, using a nice complex one. Also check the recovery email address hasn't been changed.

    cheers, Paul

    Well, I run Avira free and it found 2 "things" - as in famous SF horror.
    Both ended in quarantine.
    I attached report - in readable Word 2003 file. First 6 pages are that report.
    One is Trojan TRP.something
    and other is
    EXP.something, even "more dangerous" according to Avira.

    I hope that was it, unless someone has time to spare for checking this report.

    PS
    I even bought Avira pro or what ever it is called last summer, but I didn't install it right away, and when I tried to do it several days later, I couldn't and no one can explain to me how can I install Avira pro which was bought and paid.
    Obviously I am not a very smart user of PC...

    Your report shows a couple of infected files, not an infected computer. I wouldn't be worried.

    When you upgrade a free program to a paid version you normally add a license / key to the free version. Did you receive a license / key when you bought Avira?

    cheers, Paul
