Hacking TruthsGmail Account Hacking Tool
Aug 19, 2008 by Ashik
A tool that automatically steals IDs of non-encrypted sessions and breaks into Google Mail accounts has been presented at the Defcon hackers’ conference in Las Vegas.
Last week Google introduced a new feature in Gmail that allows users to permanently switch on SSL and use it for every action involving Gmail, and not only, authentication. Users who did not turn it on now have a serious reason to do so as Mike Perry, the reverse engineer from San Francisco who developed the tool is planning to release it in two weeks.
As I mentioned before
, you should be thinking about security
. This is so brain dead easy to do and completely transparent. If you don't starting using https
to do your Gmail
, then you deserve the pain you will receive.
