Google fixes 'minor' Gmail flaw

Source: New.com.com - Mar 2006

 

Google has fixed a flaw in its Gmail Web based e-mail service after the problem was disclosed by a blogger, the company said Thursday.

 

The flaw could allow JavaScript code to run when viewing a message in Gmail, potentially allowing malicious code to be used by an attacker to compromise a Gmail account, according to a blogger who calls himself "Anthony."

 

The blogger, who claims to be a 14-year-old student, found the flaw when sending code from his Yahoo Web mail account to his Gmail account, he wrote on Wednesday.

Notes from Clif

Wow! That was a fast fix. The blogger posted it on Wednesday and Google had it fixed on Thursday. I wish all services were that responsive.
