Hackers Cracked Gmail
Google fixed a problem in its email program that allowed hackers to read people’s email and pose as legitimate users.
Google said Wednesday it has fixed a problem in its widely used email program that allowed hackers to break into people’s Gmail accounts to read messages and pose as legitimate email users.
Google didn’t make a public announcement about the problem. Companies such as Microsoft typically alert their users to security flaws in their software.
“Usually if you’re a vendor and you have some sort of security problem, you have to publish it.”
