A few weeks ago I received the following in a mail from Google;
As a small token of appreciation for helping keep Google’s users safe and secure, we’d like to credit you on our website.
And indeed, yesterday my name was added to the “Honorable Mention” paragraph on Google’s Security Hall of Fame.
I don’t consider myself a security expert by any measure (although I am very interested in web app security) and I discovered that vulnerability in the iGoogle Facebook gadget merely by chance, but it’s nice to see my name (and a link to this blog) up there! Thanks for thanking me Google!
