Hackers are constantly trying to break into Google accounts, so Google researchers spent a year tracing how hackers steal passwords and expose them on the internet's black market.

To gather hard evidence about the tools hackers use to swipe passwords, Google collaborated with University of California Berkeley cybersecurity experts to track activity on some of these markets. On Thursday, they published their results.

"There’s a lot of anecdotes about how accounts are being hijacked and we’re providing solid evidence about how this is going on in the wild," Google anti-abuse researcher Kurt Thomas told Mashable.
