What is with the kids these days

Subject: General Tech | March 2, 2006 - 11:57 AM |

The TV news would have you believe that kids today do nothing but shoot bad guys on the computer, and pirate software and music.  Well at least one 14 year old is working to disprove that theory by finding a critical hole in Gmail, according to this story in The Inquirer.

"He was attempting to mail some javascript code from his yahoo account to my gmail when he came

across this vulnerability. Anthony noted that javascript will run if it is within the preview of

the message.

It only works if you send mail from a yahoo account. If you attempt to send Javascript from gmail

to gmail it gets filtered out."
