Google tells babus to relax, says Gmail is safe!

If you've been wondering if your Gmail account's been hacked into, relax. Google says there's no cause for worry.

With doubts being raised over the safety of its key applications and the government issuing a warning advisory, Google's now released an official clarification.

In an email sent to CNN-IBN, the company spokesperson claims it's already fixed the problems in question.

Certain bureaucrats had earlier reported problems with their mail accounts, but Google claims that's more a case of Phishing or Internet fraud and not an inherent problem with Gmail.

GMail, Picassa, Google Groups and Blogspot have been under the scanner after software loopholes that let hackers steal data, and tamper with emails were revealed.
