Hackers Find Google Buzz Exploit

It’s not enough that Google Buzz infringes your privacy, now it’s revealed that it also has at least one medium security flaw.

This security problem in Google Buzz is caused by a programming error, called a cross-site scripting flaw. This hole lets an attacker put his own scripting code into web pages that belong to sites such as Google.

This flaw makes it possible for an hacker to “use” your Google Buzz account – he can say things in your name and make you follow people you don’t want to. This also opens the door to phishing attacks.

This security problem was discovered by a hacker named TrainReq, best known for posting photos stolen from pop star Miley Cyrus’ e-mail account to the Internet.

Google said they are aware of the flaw and that they will fix it.
