Accidental Hack Reveals Gmail Flaw - Accidental Hack Reveals Gmail Flaw
Thu, January 13 2005 | 1:30PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Interesting story coming out of the woodwork about GMAIL exposing passwords...."A Unix community group has reported a flaw in Google's free Gmail email service which it warns could compromise user information. Two members of HBX Networks, going by the monikers 'Hairball' and 'MrYowler', were testing a Perl script that would send out a newsletter. When they tried to reply to the test email the page displayed HTML code which included the names and passwords of other users. "We do realise that Gmail is an invitation-only service in a beta-test state of development," said 'Hairball' on the group's website."
