A bug in OpenSSL security (very widely used in websites).It allows a hacker to trick the program into giving him just about any information about your account that he asks for.

Oh, and did I mention it's untraceable? No? Well it is. So assume any password you have on a site that uses OpenSSL is compromised. You can Google a list of affected websites, it has been patched, but depending on the website, may not be updated.

Gmail is bad, even though I use it. I wouldn't give it any more than a C++. I punched my keyboard over one glitch in gmail, and required tech knuckle support. Seriously, the developers at Google need a crash course in security.
