Google Repairs Security Flaw

In the article: Google fixes security hole, Stefanie Olsen reports that Google has fixed a flaw that was first reported on a Bugtraq list yesterday.

Google’s new Desktop Search tool did not prevent a hacker from inserting JavaScript, a programming language, into the Web address of its page image, or logo. “Google was recently alerted to a potential security vulnerability affecting users of our Web site,” a company representative said. “We have since fixed this vulnerability, and all current and future Google.com users are protected.”
