All free email providers are working to secure their database from hacking attacks as strong as possible. But at same time, black-hat hackers are searching for new ways to break inside those protected servers too. So this is like never ending cat and mouse game.
Latest rumor claim that over 50,000 Gmail and 30,000 Outlook/Hotmail accounts got stolen from users all around the word.

I’m afraid to even mention if you’ve used it for business purpose. Conclusion from this: You’re in BIG trouble!
This is why everyone should do maximum of your effort to protect every of your online account as higher possible! Use all existing solutions you read everywhere. And most important ones are:
1. Never use same password on multiple accounts. Every of your password should be different. One for Facebook, 2nd for Instagram, 3rd for Gmail, 4th for whatever else, and so on.
2. Use paid antivirus software. Why? Because hackers make new spyware/ worms/etc every day which are likely possible undetected by most AV’s. When antivirus tools detect each new ones, they put it on detected known list of malware. So when having updated good AV you’re staying in touch with every new harmful list of potential viruses.
