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?

If I am going to describe all the harm that was done, it will be worth a book, but I guess you can call it an ‘upgrade’ if I can see corporate apps that I cannot use in calendar and gmail.

Right now I am only asking about adding a personal gmail account to an ‘enterprise/business’ which is relevant to this forum. I will need to go to 5 more Google forums to ask about other G compromises this situation involves.

So my questions were:
- how would it be implemented?
- can IoT devices be linked that way?
- how on earth to get my accounts back?

Thank you!

when you sign into your  Gmail account and see if  Business mail power by Gsuite  then the hacker use your Gmail to create a Business mail power by Gsuite  and you can't used a Gmail.com account on a regular GSuite account only as a secondary email address.
 
you cancel your business email, you can go back to using your original Gmail address.
