Emails purportedly sent by the Google Accounts Team warning about a prevented “suspicious sign- in” have been spotted targeting Google users.
“Someone recently tried to use an application to sign in to your Google Account,” says
in the email. “We prevented the sign-in attempt in case this was a hijacker trying to access your account. Please review the details of the sign-in attempt in attached file.”
