DO NOT CLICK IT!  This "worm" which arrived in the inboxes of Gmail users in the form of an email from a trusted contact asking users to click on an attached "Google Docs," or GDocs, file. Clicking on the link took them to a real Google security page, where users were asked to give permission for the fake app, posing as GDocs, to have an access to the users' email account.  For added menace, this worm also sent itself out to all of the contacts of the affected user Gmail or and others spawning itself hundreds of times any time a single user was hooked on its snare.

If your family is a 4Ps subsidiary, prepare and bring your 4Ps identification card. For families who are not a member of 4Ps, bring your family's proof of income.  -Bring the registration form from your state college or university where you want to study.   Nicholas Tenazas, Deputy executive Director of CHED-UniFAST said that in the program, the state colleges and universities will not collect any tuition fee from the students. The Government will shoulder their tuition fees.  CHED-UniFAST or the Unified Student Financial Assistance For Tertiary Education otherwise known as the Republic Act 10687  which aims to provide quality education to the Filipinos.  What are the qualifications for availing of the modalities of UniFAST?  The applicant for any of the modalities under the UniFAST must meet the following minimum qualifications:  (a) must be a Filipino citizen, but the Board may grant exemptions to foreign students based on reciprocal programs that provide similar benefits to Filipino students, such as student exchange programs, international reciprocal Scholarships, and other mutually beneficial programs;   (b) must be a high school graduate or its equivalent from duly authorized institutions;   (c) must possess good moral character with no criminal record, but this requirement shall be waived for programs which target children in conflict with the law and those who are undergoing or have undergone rehabilitation;   (d) must be admitted to the higher education institution (HEI) or TVI included in the Registry of Programs and Institutions of the applicant’s choice, provided that the applicant shall be allowed to begin processing the application within a reasonable time frame set by the Board to give the applicant sufficient time to enroll;   (e) in the case of technical-vocational education and training or TVET programs, must have passed the TESDA screening/assessment procedure, trade test, or skills competency evaluation; and   (f) in the case of scholarship, the applicant must obtain at least the score required by the Board for the Qualifying Examination System for Scoring Students and must possess such other qualifications as may be prescribed by the Board.

A massive attack on Google hit millions of Gmail users after receiving an email which instructs the user to click on a document. After that, a very google-like page that will ask for your password and that's where you get infected.
Experts warned that if ever you received an email which asks you to click a document, please! DO NOT CLICK IT!

This "worm" which arrived in the inboxes of Gmail users in the form of an email from a trusted contact asking users to click on an attached "Google Docs," or GDocs, file. Clicking on the link took them to a real Google security page, where users were asked to give permission for the fake app, posing as GDocs, to have an access to the users' email account.

For added menace, this worm also sent itself out to all of the contacts of the affected user Gmail or and others spawning itself hundreds of times any time a single user was hooked on its snare.


We are investigating a phishing email that appears as Google Docs. We encourage you to not click through & report as phishing within Gmail.
It is a common strategy but what puzzled millions of affected users was the sophisticated construction of the malicious link which was so realistic; from the email sender to the link that remarkably looks real.
Worms or phishing attacks generally access your personal information like passwords of your bank accounts, social media accounts, and others.

This gmail/docs hack is clever. It's abusing oauth to gain access to accounts.

Man, gmail's getting hammered today with spam and phishing attacks.
Within an hour,  a red warning began appearing with the malicious email that says it could be a phishing attack.





Be careful, Twitter people with Gmail accounts! Do not click on the "doc share" box. It's a solid attempt at phishing.


However, Google said that they had "disabled" the malicious accounts and pushed updates to all users. They also said that it only affected "fewer than 0.1 percent of Gmail users" still be about 1 million of the service's roughly 1 billion users around the world.

All you need to do is to follow these steps:  -Inquire at the state college or university where you want to study.  -Bring Identification forms. If your family is a 4Ps subsidiary, prepare and bring your 4Ps identification card. For families who are not a member of 4Ps, bring your family's proof of income.  -Bring the registration form from your state college or university where you want to study.   Nicholas Tenazas, Deputy executive Director of CHED-UniFAST said that in the program, the state colleges and universities will not collect any tuition fee from the students. The Government will shoulder their tuition fees.

What are the qualifications for availing of the modalities of UniFAST?  The applicant for any of the modalities under the UniFAST must meet the following minimum qualifications:  (a) must be a Filipino citizen, but the Board may grant exemptions to foreign students based on reciprocal programs that provide similar benefits to Filipino students, such as student exchange programs, international reciprocal Scholarships, and other mutually beneficial programs;   (b) must be a high school graduate or its equivalent from duly authorized institutions;   (c) must possess good moral character with no criminal record, but this requirement shall be waived for programs which target children in conflict with the law and those who are undergoing or have undergone rehabilitation;   (d) must be admitted to the higher education institution (HEI) or TVI included in the Registry of Programs and Institutions of the applicant’s choice, provided that the applicant shall be allowed to begin processing the application within a reasonable time frame set by the Board to give the applicant sufficient time to enroll;   (e) in the case of technical-vocational education and training or TVET programs, must have passed the TESDA screening/assessment procedure, trade test, or skills competency evaluation; and   (f) in the case of scholarship, the applicant must obtain at least the score required by the Board for the Qualifying Examination System for Scoring Students and must possess such other qualifications as may be prescribed by the Board.

All you need to do is to follow these steps:  -Inquire at the state college or university where you want to study.  -Bring Identification forms. If your family is a 4Ps subsidiary, prepare and bring your 4Ps identification card. For families who are not a member of 4Ps, bring your family's proof of income.  -Bring the registration form from your state college or university where you want to study.   Nicholas Tenazas, Deputy executive Director of CHED-UniFAST said that in the program, the state colleges and universities will not collect any tuition fee from the students. The Government will shoulder their tuition fees.  CHED-UniFAST or the Unified Student Financial Assistance For Tertiary Education otherwise known as the Republic Act 10687  which aims to provide quality education to the Filipinos.  What are the qualifications for availing of the modalities of UniFAST?  The applicant for any of the modalities under the UniFAST must meet the following minimum qualifications:  (a) must be a Filipino citizen, but the Board may grant exemptions to foreign students based on reciprocal programs that provide similar benefits to Filipino students, such as student exchange programs, international reciprocal Scholarships, and other mutually beneficial programs;   (b) must be a high school graduate or its equivalent from duly authorized institutions;   (c) must possess good moral character with no criminal record, but this requirement shall be waived for programs which target children in conflict with the law and those who are undergoing or have undergone rehabilitation;   (d) must be admitted to the higher education institution (HEI) or TVI included in the Registry of Programs and Institutions of the applicant’s choice, provided that the applicant shall be allowed to begin processing the application within a reasonable time frame set by the Board to give the applicant sufficient time to enroll;   (e) in the case of technical-vocational education and training or TVET programs, must have passed the TESDA screening/assessment procedure, trade test, or skills competency evaluation; and   (f) in the case of scholarship, the applicant must obtain at least the score required by the Board for the Qualifying Examination System for Scoring Students and must possess such other qualifications as may be prescribed by the Board.
