SMS Recovery in Google/G-mail is pretty easy to hack.

Beware.  And tell your friends who have G-mail accounts.

Just when we thought SMS Recovery Codes where iron clad security measures for your G-mail or Gogle account, we learn they are not.  You know, the 2-step verification, where once you log in, a code is then sent to your phone or e-mail address to enter in to verify it is really you logging in.  An extra measure of security if you will.

Well, apparently that is easy to hack.

How does the hack tack place?

All the hacker needs is your e-mail address and cell phone number.

This video by Symantec explains the details.

Thanks, Symantec!  Great video.
