Google plugs hole exposing Gmail mail-boxes.
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 10/30/2004 04:24:00 PM.

Google Inc. has fixed a security flaw in its Gmail Web-based e-mail service that allowed attackers to hijack users' e-mail accounts.

"Google was recently alerted to a potential security vulnerability affecting the Gmail service. We have since fixed this vulnerability, and all current and future Gmail users are protected," Google spokesman Nathan Tyler said. Tyler declined to discuss the nature of the problem, but a source close to Google confirmed that the flaw allowed an attacker to gain complete control over a user's account.

The problem was in the way Gmail authenticated users. An attacker could steal a so-called cookie file identifying the user by making use of a seemingly innocent link to Google's own Web site, according to a report on the Web site of the Israeli publication Nana NetLife Magazine on Thursday.
