Scammers have found a way to trick Gmail’s new blue checkmark sender verification system, which was introduced to help users identify legitimate emails. The scammers have convinced Gmail that their fake brands are legitimate, undermining the system’s purpose. Cybersecurity engineer Chris Plummer discovered the flaw and brought it to Google’s attention. Initially, Google dismissed it as intended behavior but later acknowledged the error and classified it as a top priority fix. Until the issue is resolved, the verification system remains broken and can be exploited by hackers and spammers. Security researchers have also found similar vulnerabilities in other email services like iCloud, Yahoo, and Fastmail.
