Too Easy: How a Simple Hack Can Turn Your Numeric Google Profile URL Back into a Gmail Address

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Update: Google has now closed this loophole. Here is a statement we just got from a Google spokesperson:Blogger harmonyguy helped us discover a bug that made it possible to discover a user’s email address based on their numeric profile ID. Our engineers worked hard to address this issue and it is now fixed.Security blogger The Harmony Guy just told us about how this hack works. While the way to reveal these addresses isn’t obvious, you can easily follow along and try this method out yourself.How does it work?First, you simply copy the numbers from a user’s Google profile and then append these numbers to http://picasaweb.google.com/[numbers]. For some users who haven’t customized their Picasa page, the username (which is also their Gmail address) will come right up. If the user has customized the account and added a nickname, you simply have to replace the URL in the address bar with javascript:alert(_user.name); and a small pop-up window will show you the username.CaveatsIt’s important to note that this only works for Google users who also use the Picasa web service. This, however, is likely a large percentage of Gmail users.How to Protect YourselfIn Picasa Web Albums, go to the settings page and add a new username. Then, select the new username for your gallery URL. As The Harmony Guy points out, you may also want to edit your nickname.Is this a major issue for Google? Probably not.

The URL of your profile alone can already give away your Gmail address. To hide this address from public view, you can switch your profile URL away from showing your name to using an address that features a 21-digit number instead of your username. However, as it turns out, this isn’t a foolproof method either. By using a very simple trick, anybody can quickly figure out your Gmail address from these numbers.last_img read more
