Gmail hacked?

Update: Reports of similar problems on Google:

Gosh, I hate to sound paranoid, but at 8AM today my GMail account was operational and fine.

At 10 AM today I suddenly cannot access my email because it won’t accept my password. After an extraordinarily frustrating hour of trying to find out why I cannot access my account (and when I email for a password refresher I am told there is no account with my reported secondary email?), I have reported a security breach to Google.

I’m not the only one. There are several reports of similar problems in Google groups.

Now, it could just be a weird outage on their side…(though I was able to log into all over family members’ gmail accounts just fine). Or not.

Anyone seeing reports of issues with Gmail? Leave a comment…because even paranoids have real enemies. :)
