Google fixes security flaw in Reader


Google said it fixed a security flaw in Google Reader on Wednesday that could have allowed a hacker to steal sensitive information from Web surfers.

A Google RSS feed addition tool was vulnerable to a cross site scripting attack, a poster to the Ha.ckers.org blog wrote on Tuesday. Such attacks involve an attacker embedding HTML scripts in Web postings or input fields on a Web site. Google fixes security flaw in Reader | CNET News.com
