The same can be said of AOL, Hotmail/Outlook, and Gmail.  (Even though
I think very highly of Google's security people.)  The combined attacker
budget for compromising these is enormous and it seems overly optimistic
to me to assume that nobody's managed to pull it off yet.  (Maybe not in
full, but at least in part.)  I hope I'm wrong.  I'd *like* to be wrong.
I don't think I'm wrong.
