Google has stated, "This issue affects less than 0.08% of the Google Mail userbase. Google engineers are working to restore full access. Affected users may be temporarily unable to sign in while we repair their accounts."

Reportedly Gmail has over 150 million users worldwide. Such an incident makes it clear that even cloud computing might not keep our data reliably safe and sound.
