Hack Password

Google and its services are the number one products out there that are being used by billions and today there is a sad day for all those people. Earlier today the news break out that 5 Million Gmail accounts have been hacked and not only that the guy uploaded it to the site with just the e-mail addresses without passwords for the checking.

All of us know that there is one Google account for all of their products and with being compromised can lead to a serious problem for million of users. Hacking attacks are already on the rise since from the last couple of years we can see the passwords of various accounts of many big sites are leaked out online and some sites like Facebook also received some messages regarding hacking. According to reports the extracted password details are old but the hacker commented that 60% of the passwords are still working and its giving him the access to your accounts.

However Google says that the info’s are very old and there servers are completely healthy and nothing wrong is there with it. Also Google has created a special feature which is 2-step authentication and with that most of the accounts are secure and nothing can be done to it since they also needs the codes and they can’t get it. In the mean time a guy scrapped the details from the database and created a new site called¬†isleaked.com. Here you can enter your e-mail id and it will check for your id in the database and if it can’t found it then it will reply with the message.

Anyway we do suggest all our readers to use the 2-step authentication feature and along with that do keep changing your passwords monthly and do use strong combinations. We hope that Google will also launch some new features to increase the protection further.
