Google Toolbar Security Hole Exposed
Security Tracker has found a vulnerability that allows sites to run code via the Google Toolbar. A site can create code that can be accidentally run by the user, which loads the toolbar's "About" page and runs malicious code via that page. Google needs to prove it is serious about security by patching the toolbar fast.
(via Search Engine Lowdown and Search Engine Journal)

Side note: Has anyone noticed the Latin text in the Google Toolbar's About page? It reads "de parvis grandis acervus erit", which according to Webmaster World means roughly "Out of small things a great heap will be formed".
