    "A security hole in GMail has been found (an XSS vulnerability) which allows
    access to user accounts without authentication. What makes the exploit worse
    is the fact that changing passwords doesn't help. The full details of the
    exploit haven't been disclosed. The vulnerability was reported by Israeli
    news site Nana. They were tipped off by an Israeli hacker. Google has been
    notified and they are working to close the hole. The Register has the story
    here."
