"Tens of thousands of Gmail users found themselves locked out of their accounts Sunday, a glitch Google engineers were still struggling to fix and fully understand Monday morning. Initial reports suggested as many as half a million accounts were compromised, the years' worth of e-mails potentially permanently erased. Google acknowledged the issue at 3:09 p.m EST Sunday, eventually determining that the problem affected just 0.08% of users, or about 150,000 accounts." (02/28/11)
