Google Gmail flaw !

The popular Google free email service GMail has been found by the UNIX Community group of HBX Networks to contain a flaw, which could allow an attacer to intercept a users email.
The flaw could be exploited by an attacker by send specially crafted email messages to themselves, and information that is left in memory from previously handled emails for other people will appear within the email sent to the attacker.Sometimes these emails could contain personal information, usernames and passwords and other potentially sensitive information. You can discover more about this flaw and see more details on the HBX Networks UNIX Community Group website.
