"javascript will run if it is withing the preview of the message" meaning that hackers could grab email addresses or possibly steal cookies and compromise Google accounts. It's surprising that this vulnerability existed and who knows how long this has been a hole.

apparently the hole was first discovered/reported by a 14yr old on his blog :)

I can't reproduce it . . . I'm guessing it's either fixed or depends on browser.  He didn't say what he was using . . .
