Hacker adding personal gmail to gsuite administrator dashboard? 0 Recommended Answers 8 Replies 15 Upvotes
Last edited 4/1/19
Presuppose a perpetrator with a malicious server has cracked a personal gmail account and has a full access to all the necessary private details and other accounts.It is not clear how the existing gmail accounts are added to admin console from help articles. It's a real-life situation as I have an account that exibits strange behaviours and confirmed domain-controlled botnet that infected all devices on the home network with GBs of data stolen.
My google account requests me to use a phone number to change my password when I have deleted this phone number from the account. Furthemore, I cannot remove hacked devices out of it, adding a yubikey adds a duplicate 'security key' together with it from 'unknown device' and there are other limitations in the account that make it look like it is under business/enterprise management account.
So my questions are:
- Is it possible for a perpertrator to add a personal gmail account to a 'business/enterprise' administrator console?
- Can the linked security key become 'managed by a business' that way?
- How do you recognise that your account is managed by a 'business' when relevant emails are being deleted before the owner sees them?
- Will IoT devices connected to this account become 'business property' too? I am asking as they behave strangely even after a reset.
Thank you in advance!
I would really like Google to explain what where they thinking when allowing their admin console owners to add devices based on their serial numbers. I did not know that one tiny alpha-numeric code is enough to prove ownership?
