Gmail flaw allows attackers to steal messages

Not open for further replies.


In the example, the attacker writes a filter, which simply looks for e-mails with attachments and forwards them to an e-mail of their choice," Petkov said. "This filter will automatically transfer all e-mails matching the rule

Keep in mind that future e-mails will be forwarded as well. The attack will remain present for as long as the victim has the filter within their filter list, even if the initial vulnerability, which was the cause of the injection, is fixed by Google," he added.

Google confirmed the vulnerability and said it is working on a fix, but did not give a timetable for patching Gmail, saying only that "we expect [it] to be implemented shortly."

God of Mistakes...
I didn't know, this will be a news !!

I was able to send FUTURE mails from GMail since last year.

Let me tell u the procedure.... (Only thing is that u have to enable POP access to ur GMail account)

Configure your Microsoft Office Outlook with GMail account.
Change ur system date to any future day.
Now, send the mail.

And thats all... :)

GMail server takes local system date and NOT server date !!
