    Default GMail Hacker: D'oh! A supposed hacking tool - Beware!

    One of our researchers has come across a supposed hacking tool—GMail Hacker Pro—that claims it can compromise GMail accounts. This tool comes with a fairly slick looking website (complete with live chat support) located at gmailhackerpro(dot)com.

    Clearly, this is designed to extract a tidy sum of money from unwitting users, and we'd like to save you, Dear Reader, the trouble of wanting to try it out. We categorize GMail Hacker Pro as a Trojan under the detection name GmailHackerPro.pj!.1a.VirusTotal scores currently sit at 16/43.

    If you happen to lose or forget your GMail password, have GMail reset the password for you so you can access it again and assign a new password for it. Doing so won't cost you anything. That said, steer clear from this one, please.

    You're welcome, Azharuddin

    Everyone can be trapped now and then so this kind of warnings are a way to keep us on alert.
