Malicious Gadgets

The gadgets are coming… The (malicious) gadgets are coming. Sure we all know about gadgets/widgets and how they foster cross-site integration and the ability for users to take the best of various applications and data and meld them together in a single user interface.

While the concept of gadgets and widgets is not new, their growing popularity has become a target for hackers and this article points out some of the risks. Moreover it contains comments from Google on how gadgets are useful and their gadgets are generally safe.

My take is that gadgets and widgets are important parts of the future of the web and moreover, as technology gets more complex, the ability to fight off hackers becomes more important and at the same time, more difficult.
