Gmail users targeted in hacker attacks – Technology – NZ Herald News

Hackers have set their sights on Google’s Gmail email service after revelations of widespread attacks on Microsoft’s Hotmail yesterday.

Google has confirmed that the popular messaging service is the latest victim, and that it too was a phishing scam – which uses fake websites to trick internet users into revealing personal details.

Over 30,000 users of Hotmail, Yahoo and AOL have been affected, but Google says less than 500 of its Gmail users were victims of the scam.
