Submission + - GMail Exploit Is Now Fixed

Rub3X writes: "Earlier I reported that Google had a flaw in which it stores contact details in a JavaScript file on their server. A website could in return declare the function "google", and put all your contacts and their details into an array. From there it could have been parsed and sent to the malicious server using Ajax. Earlier today there were reports on zdnet that said the flaw was fixed, however at the time it wasn't true. Currently as of 8 PM EST the flaw has been fixed. When attempting to execute the attack, all you get is a blank page now. Visiting the old page on Google that revealed all the data in an XML file now gives an error. If you don't get the error log out of Google's services and back in."

The reason that every major university maintains a department of mathematics is that it's cheaper than institutionalizing all those people.
