What To Do If You Clicked The Google Doc

googledocs

Warning: Don’t click any of the many shared Google Docs you’ve received today (May 10, 2017). A virus is masquerading itself as a legitimate Google Docs link, and it has no warnings from Google about its validity right now. It’s very easy to mistake it for authentic.

If you did click any of the docs, don’t burn your computer. Follow these simple steps to secure your account.

  1. Remove the authenticated service from your Google account here. If you see Google Docs listed, delete it. This is an imposter. Google Docs already has access to your Google Account and doesn’t need it specified here.

  2. UPDATE: Google officially announced it is investigating this phishing scam. It asks you report your messages as phishing within Gmail.
  3. Our friendly web team also recommends changing your password immediately, and being mindful of any password reset links you may see for a few minutes.

Big shoutout to our web team for keeping us safe amid the chaos. Literally the best place for this to happen to an account is within their knowledgable reach. Read Sam’s full post about the virus. Then keep up with the Twitter jokes.


What Makes a GIF Great?

We’ve all seen them. The short video clips played on a loop for your never-ending entertainment. In a visually driven world, GIF’s provide a sequence of images that excel at catching our short attention spans.

Packed with a punch, GIFs show a message in seconds. From ironic to heartfelt, these to-the-point image files don’t make viewers wait for a story. Unlike web videos, a GIF makes you laugh, smile, cringe or scream in just a blink.

GIFs popularity can also be contributed to the nostalgia factor, according to Alex Williams at The New York Times.

“For people in their 20s, GIFs are a relic of their childhood, so it makes sense they would come back as a fashion statement— just like 70s fashion came back in the 90s, and the 90s are coming back around now,” Jason Tanz, executive editor of Wired, told Williams.

The GIF has exploded online, portraying every event and emotion possible. Entertainment news, sport networks and bloggers turn to GIFs to give viewers what they want right away on platforms like Tumblr and BuzzFeed. Did you miss the moment an actress fell at the Oscars? There’s a GIF for that. Does a cute puppy tumble make your heart melt? Well, watch it on repeat until your heart’s all aflutter.
