If you watched this video on phishing attacks today, you may have noticed that our security expert, Eric Fiterman, mentioned the username and password of a Gmail account he set up.
Well, that video was taped a month ago, and poor Eric forgot to change his password. (Eric has since changed the password, so if you haven’t tried yet, you’re out of luck.)
Lo and behold, three people tested it out and snooped around in the Gmail account: One from Canada (18.104.22.168), one from Michigan (22.214.171.124) and one from the United Kingdom (126.96.36.199).
Eric wouldn’t be a good security expert if he didn’t get more information about those IP addresses. And what did he find out about the third one?
