    It was bound to happen - I'm sure Google will address it quickly, but then there's always next time...

    Sounds serious...
    Doesn't sound like it has been exploited though, at least not yet. Wonder what it is about Gmail that makes it vulnerable and not other web based mail?

    Anybody know?

    This kind of problem isn't unique to Google. A very similar problem turned up in the past with Hotmail and a somewhat related security flaw turned up in Yahoo mail.

    I guess its part and parcel of the development cycle, perhaps what makes the difference is how fast and well they response to it.
