The account details have been posted online on a Bitcoin security forum called, by a user. He has claimed that over 60 percent of credentials found inside are valid.

However, Google while acknowledging the leak in a blog post, said that its servers would have blocked suspicious log-in attempts. It further said that only 2% of the password and username combos would work.

Google said: "Often, these credentials are obtained through a combination of other sources. For instance, if you reuse the same username and password across websites, and one of those websites gets hacked, your credentials could be used to log into the others.
