Google tackled on e-mail security

Session hijacking could put personal details at risk

Google has been asked to explain why it is not making its Gmail e-mail service more secure.

In an open letter to Google boss Eric Schmidt, security experts, lawyers, and privacy advocates ask why Gmail users are “needlessly” being put at risk.

The 38 signatories want Google to start using the secure version of the HTTP protocol to protect Gmail users.

In response, Google said it was considering trials of the secure system with a select group of users.
