GMail Messages are Vulnerable to Interception
- It all started about 3 days ago when MrYowler and I were working on a mailing list script to send out a batch of newsletters for a free hacker-friendly shell service we operate. We made the decision to keep it simple; a Perl script based upon the Net::SMTP CPAN module. Being the Perl guru that MrYowler is (shut up! people will start having expectations of me! ;-P), he had one whipped up in about 20 minutes. In the course of testing the script, we cranked out 10 newsletters to our GMail inboxes. We were a little shocked with that happened next.
