Default Serious Flaw In Google Desktop Gets Fix

Google has fixed a serious flaw in Google Desktop. The flaw could have left your box open to intruders and possible data theft.

The search giant has released patches for the issues, which were reported by Watchfire in a paper published Wednesday. One of the problems is a cross-site scripting flaw that could let an outsider look through files on a compromised machine.
