Finjan Reconfirms Google Security Leak


Google leak

Internet security service Finjan today reconfirmed reports that Google exposed private user names and passwords on its anti-phishing blacklist. On January 3, 2007, they discovered this list of URLs which could have potentially become a target for identity theft. Although Google has removed the offending information, Finjan suggests the following steps to insure that you don’t become a future victim.

  • Avoid sharing your browsing habits with third parties by disabling URL sharing or forwarding.
  • Use adequate password policy for your web accounts. Do not use the same password for all web accounts.
  • Make sure that your PC is adequately protected from malicious software such as spyware and adware that can send out private information.

What creeps us out almost as much as the exposed list is that you can still check it out to see if it looks familiar.
