Google Docs phishing email 'cost Minnesota $90,000'

About 2,500 state employees received the email, according to the state chief information security officer.

Around the world, people have reported getting multiple copies of the email, while others have received the message from trusted organisations.

One million Gmail users, which Google says is "fewer than 0.1%", were affected.

The cost to the Minnesota state government was mainly the result of employees dealing with the attack rather than carrying out their normal jobs, said state chief information security officer Christopher Buse.

Teen canoeist, 2 others saved after plunging over waterfall

The Lake County Sheriff's Office says one teen boy became wedged under a log after the plunge over the Upper Basswood Falls in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness around 1 p.m. Tuesday.

Sheriff Casey Johnson says the falls have a drop of 25 to 30 feet.

It took over five hours for rescuers to reach and free the boy. The sheriff says the boy likely has hypothermia and an ankle fracture, but the other two are OK.
