Unusual phishing scam targets Google Docs

There is a bizarre phishing attack involving sharing of Google Docs.  It will lead you to a real Google account page but then to fake documents page, as Timothy B. Lee explains on Vox here.

Fixing the hack involves removing an instance of “Google Docs” from the Google app permission page. Changing your own password doesn’t do any good.

But apparently this scam has circulated before, given YouTube videos about it.
