All somebody has to do to hack into your google account and compromise all your data is throw up a web page that looks like the Chrome OS login and hope you aren't all that savvy, or aren't paying attention.


Using HTTPS instead of plain HTTP should help to avoid man-in-the-middle attacks. As far as I know all Google services support HTTPS.
