Robert Hansen, a Security Researcher and CEO of SecTheory, believes that gmodules.com domain used for hosting Google gadgets can be used by phishers.

Hansen said that gmodules.com can be used by phishers for bypassing antiphishing filters. Malefactor can create phishing web site on gmodules.com and then send the link leading to this web site to his victim. Because gmodules.com domain belongs to Google and is considered as a trustworthy web site then antiphishing filters will pass it and the victim will be redirected to the illegal web site.

Robert Hansen, a frequent critic of Google, informed the safety team of company about this problem, but the team replied that there is no reason to worry about. Unsatisfied with the talk, Hansen says that if they leave it as it is then this web site will definitely be used for phishing attacks.
