sh** happens :p

:D

Anyway, this kind of bug is not a big deal, there is a lot of php freescript with this kind of bug, it was (and sometimes it IS) relly easy to steal a cookie from forum or anything else. And the problem is not only in the free script, but also in forum like vbulletim etc...
I sure that froggle will corect this bug very soon... It's a matter of time.


*** sorry for my crappy english.

Just to clarify, the problem isn't in Gmail, it's in Froogle.


Actually, it's both.

The idea is to create secure products. That includes making it secure to any other programs (or scripts) installed on the system and from other users on the system.

you are probably not going to find an answer on neowin because it could teach you how to hack others accounts as well. i can simply say i've lost my password as well, even though i havent.

you're not supposed to have more than 1 account anyway.
