No answer, just to say I am getting the same. Last one was "FCM test notificationsss" which looks a bit dodgy!

Happening to me too, I got 7 in the last 15 minutes, 3 saying "Test Notification!!!!" then 4 "Test Notificationsss!!!!"

Seems illegitimate, as this is directly what has been happening on Google Hangout forums yesterday.

Hopefully Microsoft patches this soon before it does any harm.

And same here. Here are Google thread about it. Same messages are sent from Google Hangouts. I think that it's Android or Google (Store) problem.

Hi Tharun,

I'm Ed, a fellow customer like you & an Independent Advisor.
I can understand it's important for you to know what this notification is for. I was able to check this and seems that others are also getting the same. This appears to be related to a vulnerability that FCM has published which most apps use to deliver notifications.

You can check it here: https://abss.me/posts/fcm-takeover/
Also, a related incident happened with Google Hangouts: https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/08/25/hangou...
