Gmail Flaws

I just read this morning about a flaw Google had in its Gmail system. It was uncovered by a 14-year-old boy called Anthony. Google seems miffed that he decided to make it public instead of telling them directly. It might be to save some face – or to ensure the word doesn’t go around among XSS hackers. I think he decided to post it his way because Google supposedly doesn’t reply to say thanks after helpful people have identified security holes in its system.

Here’s the full article and this is Anthony’s blog entry. The future lies with the young!
