Gmail Security Flaw?

I found a report on Sassy's blog about a Gmail security flaw. It had a link to an Israeli newsarticle. I had to verify it with sources more familiar to me than that Israeli news agency.

The source I got, The Register and LinuxSecurity, were sites I used to read in my past Internet researches. But even The Register quoted the Israeli newsarticle. Well, I guess it's natural for an Israeli news agency to pick up this news. The hacker who discovered the security flaw is an Israeli.

Am I worried? Not really. I know Hotmail and Yahoo!mail went through similar security problems in the past. And nobody would be interested in hacking my Gmail account. And if anyone did, I'd be flattered! hehehe. ... Kids, don't try that at home!

    I heard about the Gmail security flaw shortly after I received my account a few months back. Like you, it was no cause for concern, at least for me. Ganon ka-boring ang buhay ko. Heheh...
