Hello;

For the last one week, I see lots of Google docs links on the forum. What is the point of that??

Is that a virus or something like that?

Thank you!

They are probably google sheet links.  People use it all the time.
But you should always scan the links for anything suspicious before visiting them.

I only see these google docs in a bounty campaign thread (ie. signature campaign, twitter, social media, etc.) There really isn't that much compared to the number of topics here.
Like jhanzo said, there's nothing to worry about.

Make sure that it's not a fake link with a redirect to anything that may appear to be a google spreadsheet (or anything you may trust/enter your password into) by hovering over the hyperlink or quoting the post.

Example:

https://google.com
which is actually
Code:
[url=https://bitcointalk.org/]https://google.com[/url]



This was an issue that was brought up about phishing attempts via a site whose url was similar to bitcointalk.
