Google to Warn Organizations Against State-Sponsored Hacking

Google announced this week that it has added a new feature to G Suite that will alert organizations if their accounts are being targeted by government-backed hackers.

The feature, which is off by default, can warn the user via email if Google believes a government-backed attacker has attempted to gain access to the user’s account or computer via methods like phishing or malware. However, Google adds that it does not necessarily mean that the account has been compromised or that there is a widespread attack.

Google also warned that these attackers have been known to send malicious PDF files, Office documents, or RAR files.
