Google patches Gmail security hole
Google has fixed a bug in its Web-based e-mail service, Gmail, that allowed users to read the contents of other people's messages.
HBX Networks discovered the bug while testing a Perl script intended to automate sending batches of newsletters. Messages sent to the group's own e-mail address contained HTML code in the "Reply To" field, and this code turned out to be the message body of other users' e-mail messages.
