Hacking Backdoor in G-Archiver Found!March 11, 2008 – 10:23 AM
A serious Gmail account hacking backdoor, has been found in the popular Gmail archiving software G-Archiver. This application, in all its innocence, allows you to download and backup all emails from your GMail account. But apparently the developer included the code to send an email to his email ID with all usernames and passwords!
G-Archiver has posted this explanation of what happened: “It is urgent that you remove the current version of G-Archiver from your computer, and change your Gmail account password right away. What happened was that a member of our development team had inserted coding used for testing G-Archiver in the debug version and forgot to delete it in the final release version.”
Hopefully, G-Archiver will release a new version very soon.
