What I Learned Today

by James on July 19, 2011

Today I wrote my first blog entry on this site and I don’t think it could have been any bigger. It is going to be hard to top that one, but I also learned a few things:

  • That you can actually contact Google if you think there is a security problem see here
  • Responsible disclosure – it probably wasn’t best to go down the full disclosure route
The good news is that after speaking with the security team at Google they are fixing the vulnerability and are going to revert any changes that have been made by utilising this exploit when they are done. So all in all, poor method of disclosure but it got exactly the desired result.
