Google Desktop Exploit

Jon Hanna mentioned in a mailing list that I am on that there is a published exploit of Google (a script insertion flaw) and worse, this exploit also affects the Google Desktop Engine.

In light of this, I would strongly advise against installing the Google Desktop Search until this has been resolved satisfactorily.

One thought on “Google Desktop Exploit”

  1. The real story here though to my mind is that google were warned about it 2 years ago and only fixed it this morning after Jim considered the extra dangers with the desktop app decided to just go ahead and publish.
