An exploit has just been discovered in Google’s Gmail, which could allow hackers to add filters to certain accounts. The filter can then be used to forward email from a Gmail account to a hackers account while also deleting it from the victims inbox.

Aside from getting into your email, this could also be used for domain hijacking. If Gmail is used as the administration/contact email for a domain, then hackers could request a password reset on the login and then obtain the details when they are emailed through. With these details a domain can easily be hijacked.

To ensure that your Gmail is safe, keep a close eye on your filters.
