How Hackers Bypass Gmail 2FA at Scale

A new Amnesty International report goes into some of the technical details
around how hackers can automatically phish two-factor authentication tokens
sent to phones.

your phone may not be enough to protect your email account.

Hackers can bypass these protections, as we've seen with leaked NSA
documents on how Russian hackers targeted US voting infrastructure
companies. But a new Amnesty International report gives more insight
into how some hackers break into Gmail and Yahoo accounts at scale,
even those with two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled.
