    I've read about how some Gmail accounts were recently hacked. Some articles talk about Gmail accounts of human rights activists, but I wonder if any other people's accounts may have been hacked. I'm not a human rights activist, but I still wonder if my Gmail data and Google Documents data may have been accessed by hackers.

    I had a VERY good password on mine, and my system is clean, so no, I'm not worried about the hacking. I have however dumped Gmail due to this and Googles actions as of late, and am looking elsewhere for my mail.

    Pretty funny and ironic that Google was hacked because they were using Internet Explorer on Windows boxes they had at the locations that were cracked. And there are still no fixes for these 0-day exploits from M$. :argh:

    I guess they don't have enough faith in Chrome? I'm not shocked there's no patch yet, hardly any vendor sends out a patch without a few days of investigating and testing.

    I'm not worried, because I'm not using a Gmail account :)

    Never, Cookies are anonmized and some scripts are blocked. Not to mention my clean computer, having a router and sandboxed browser.
