Phishing

(Before It's News)

I read this story about how hackers got into Colin Powell and John Podesta’s emails.

It is somewhat shocking to me that Google’s algorithms allowed fake emails from Google to get into a Gmail user’s inbox.

One of the many reasons I use Gmail over any other email service is its algorithms that keep spam and malicious emails out of my inbox. They have done a remarkably good job of that for me over the ten(ish) years I’ve been on Gmail.

This is not only a black eye for the Clinton campaign and Colin Powell. It’s a black eye for Google and Gmail.

I hope they take this as a challenge to improve their anti-phishing algorithms.
