This week, our co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Aaron Higbee had an opportunity to discuss the recent Google Docs phishing scam on the The Charles Tendell Show.

“The Google Docs phishing incident left a lot of security vendors scratching their heads,” HigBee explains. “This was simple granting of permissions, not malicious attachments or links and it represents the future of phishing.  Many apps already ask for permissions so the request won’t be seen as unusual when used in phishing.”
