Hackers Get Way Up Into Google System

Convinced that cloud computing is secure? We're rethinking our position on it, too, after reading this week that hackers who hit Google last year stole the company's source code for its global password system. That's kind of like stealing the Colonel's secret recipe of herbs and spices or swiping the keys to Fort Knox. Point is, what these hackers were able to do was get to the very heart of what makes Google… well, Google. And that's a much bigger deal than just being able to siphon off some user names or personal information. They didn't nick the hubcaps off of the car; they took the engine. Wow.
