The latest round of hackers targeting Gmail accounts is likely to become a lot more common in the coming months, with an estimated 2 million accounts compromised in the last five months alone.
And a number of services will be forced to change how they handle the accounts, including Google, Twitter, Yahoo and Microsoft.
The hackers are also likely to move on to other services.
While these are certainly not the only targets of the cyber-attack, they are the most likely ones to have been affected by it.
“It’s going to be much more common and more widespread than what we thought,” says Chris Smith, principal security researcher at Sophos.
The attackers are probably using the same techniques and tools they used in the recent attacks, Smith says.
These attacks are usually connected to a “dark web” that is inaccessible to the normal Internet, and that’s why the security experts don’t really know what’s going on.
Google has confirmed that the hack took place, but declined to comment further.
Microsoft confirmed that its network was compromised, but the company is notifying users.
Twitter confirmed that it has been compromised, and the company also declined to elaborate.
Google also didn’t say what services it had been compromised.
However, Smith thinks it’s safe to say that most of the services that have been hit with the attacks, including Gmail, Twitter and Microsoft, have moved to encrypt their services.
But it’s worth noting that some of the most popular services, such as Twitter, have not.
This is because, at least in the US, they can’t be locked down by default, according to Smith.
Some of the other services, like Microsoft and Yahoo, are not completely shut down.
Microsoft also said that it will soon update its encryption to more closely match those in the United Kingdom.
Microsoft says it is working to add more tools to block these attackers from taking over the services.
“We are working hard to protect our users and we have taken action to encrypt some of our most popular online services, including our Outlook email service, Gmail, and Yahoo,” a spokesperson said.
“But we can’t prevent these attacks from happening again, so we will continue to work to strengthen our defenses.”
In the UK, for example, Microsoft has already started encrypting some of its services.
Smith says this is likely due to the fact that UK authorities have taken a proactive approach to the issue.
“The British government has done a lot of work in the past year to try and get these attacks stopped,” Smith says, adding that it is now doing this in a more concerted manner.
“There are some steps in the UK to make it more difficult for attackers to get their hands on these services, but this is a long-term solution.”
It’s also worth mentioning that some companies, such in the USA, are also encrypting their services, and are using a more general approach, such that the attackers will have to use the same methods to get around the security measures.
However these are not the first attacks on Gmail accounts.
The hacker group known as Backdoor.org also targeted Gmail accounts, and took over a number other services as well.
In 2013, it was reported that the group had stolen about 1.6 million Gmail accounts for $2 million.
The group is now thought to have about 2 million compromised accounts, but has also been active in Europe.
Microsoft has not commented on this latest attack.
However Smith notes that there are a number ways in which the attackers can still access the accounts.
They can get access to the email addresses of those who have already been compromised and also the passwords for those who aren’t.
The other way they can access the email address of those that have already compromised is to log in to an email account with a username and password that’s also associated with the compromised email account.
The email address can also be accessed by accessing a web browser that’s linked to an account on the same domain, which can then allow the attackers to view the account.
Google confirmed that Gmail accounts had been hacked, but it did not elaborate on the reasons behind the breach.
Twitter also confirmed that accounts had indeed been compromised in October.
Twitter is also not the biggest target, with only about 100 million Gmail users.
But this is because Twitter’s data centres are spread all over the world, which means that hackers can also use those locations to launch attacks against other services on other continents.
Microsoft, however, said that about 1 million of its Gmail users were also affected by the attack.
This may not seem like a lot, but, as Smith says: “This is still a lot.
It’s more than what people thought.”
The hackers have also taken control of the Yahoo domain name system, which is used for the internal DNS system that connects Yahoo accounts to the rest of the Internet.
“Yahoo has been very good at securing their internal systems,” Smith said.
In addition, he added, they have a lot to hide, including a number that
