Security researchers identified a security flaw in the Google Apps Admin console that could have been exploited to gain temporary ownership of any previously unclaimed domain and used to send malicious emails that would not be flagged as suspicious because they came from trusted servers. Google has addressed the vulnerability. Source

Two men were arrested for their roles in what authorities are calling the largest data breach in U.S. history, in which the suspects allegedly made millions of dollars between 2009-2012 by stealing over 1 billion email addresses from 8 U.S. email service providers and used their distribution platforms to send millions of spam emails containing links to Web sites that promoted products through affiliated marketing activities. Authorities continue to search for a third suspect connected to the scheme. Source
