It’s so popular many people just think Google is the Internet. Google hires many of the most talented minds and has been online since the 90s. Hacking into Google is no easy task. There’s a team of security engineers who test and check all the configurations on the site before they go live.

Security plays a very vital role at Google, and everything has to have the best protections. But this attack slipped past all that. Hackers had found their way into the network.

And realized pretty quickly they were dealing with an attack more sophisticated than anything they’ve ever seen.<br><br>Podcast recommendation: <a href="https://www.20k.org/">Twenty Thousand Hertz</a><br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.
