Surfing Google may be a Security risk

Robert Hansen, CEO of secTheory, said that due to the need that Google has to track us, they may be leaving us open to attack – At issue is Google’s policy of hosting untested third-party applications that users can automatically embed into personalised Google home pages, mainly through iGoogle and the gadgets.

Since I learnt this I have deleted all the Google cookies.

I wonder if this alleged management oversight may back fire on Google – it certainly has with me – I have seriously been looking at Live and Yahoo search – unfortunately the new search engine Cuil.com – I don’t know about their business plan – because I cannot see how they can make money as well as the poor results they return compared to the other Search Engines.
