Google Reader security flaw gets you unlimited blog subscribers

    A flaw in Google Reader and the Google homepage means that if you add a couple of 1 pixel wide iframes on your website you can auto subscribe all your visitors to your RSS feed or an affiliate offers feed;).

    Add something like this link (this subscribes you to my feed so watch out if you click it) to your iframe src and bingo, the reader has subscribed!:eek:

    You've made some nice posts recently. Guess I'll put Blogstorm on my daily reading list.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I probably won't use this trick (Google will probably fix it within a few hours LOL), but still thanks for this. Its impressing to see what kind of stupid flaws there sometimes are :)
    Lol, adding 1pixel-wide iframes :D

    Wanted to add rep, but it seems I given you some already earlier :|

    OT: but I like the Article you posted about the foreign lang websites. I found the google trends link to be very useful in it. (didn't know about it until I seen you link to it.).

    Seems like most of the stuff this guy posts about doesn't work - just like his article on using Google alerts to detect if your blog was hacked. He's just using linkbait to get more traffic so it'll be the last time I visit that blog and waste my time.
