SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Google Inc. GOOG on Tuesday warned that cybercriminals are increasingly focused on stealing passwords to break into Google email accounts as a way to send spam mail to users. In a company blog post, Google said that it has seen "a large increase in fraudulent mail sent from Google accounts," since 2010 when "spammers started changing their tactics." The security update post by Google security engineer Mike Hearn said, "With stolen passwords in hand, attackers attempt to break into accounts across the web and across many different services. We've seen a single attacker using stolen passwords to attempt to break into a million different Google accounts every single day, for weeks at a time. A different gang attempted sign-ins at a rate of more than 100 accounts per second." Google share were up more than 1%, setting a new high above $800.
