Just saw Mandiant report and gmail is just high fail. Chinese can create gmail account then verify it even if they are in china without any problems. Afterwards, they use gmail for spear fishing and hacking into hotmail, gmail, PC, ect.
Bottom line gmail is a great hacking tool and let people using their service are just hacker target.
[citation][nom]dalethepcman[/nom]I am so sick of the "what as your high school mascot, pets name, mothers name, first car" questions that you can actually just Google the person to get the answer too. Tada account hacked...The two step authentication is nice, but can be cumbersome. The 255 character limit, custom created security Q&A, text message and recovery email is spectacular though.Nothing like having a password of YouWillNeverDictionaryOrRainbowTableMeBecauseMyPasswordIsStupidLong!p.s.-hahaha[/citation]
Easy to break, dictionary attack will catch that password quick. Don't believe me? Check and see how many generators build passwords out of dictionary words.
Besides as I recall Google (and most others) only use the first 30ish characters regardless of the number you actually enter. Made for some fun with my bank password because it let me enter a 20 character password, afterwards I could never get back in. It only saved the first 16 so when I entered 20 it would always fail authentication.
