+ - Flixster Grabbing Users' AOL and Gmail Passwords

Submitted by Talaria
Talaria (874527) writes "The social networking movie review site Flixster is grabbing their users' AOL, Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail passwords, and using them to access their users' address books and send "invitations" to join Flixster to everyone in the address book, making it appear to be from the user. The password prompt screen looks very compelling, and even includes the ISP's logo right next to the password prompt. Rather than hiding this little "feature", Flixster brags about it in an interview following their receiving $2million in venture funding earlier this year."

Don't be irreplaceable, if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
