Google explanation on security vulnerability in Gmail

Google said phishing emails are responsible for domain hijackings  and they claimed that there is no evidence of a Gmail vulnerability.

According to Google the cause was a phishing scheme  . Google had found out this with the help of affected users. Google  explained the modus operandi –

“Attackers sent customized e-mails encouraging web domain owners to visit fraudulent websites such as “google-hosts.com” that they set up purely to harvest usernames and passwords. These fake sites had no affiliation with Google, and the ones we’ve seen are now offline. Once attackers gained the user credentials, they were free to modify the affected accounts as they desired. In this case, the attacker set up mail filters specifically designed to forward messages from web domain providers.”

Reagrding Gmail CSRF bug Google has said that there was a Gamil CSRF bug in september 2007 that they fixed in 24 hours and after that there was no such bug as reported .
