In case I was too subtle in the last post, if you have a gmail account, I would immediately check to see if any of the emails in your incoming or outgoing folders have a password in them. If so, I would change the password at these accounts mentioned in the emails.

I would also recommend that you access the gmail settings, and set forwarding on your gmail account to forward to a more secure email system and trash the emails sent to you on gmail.

In plain words: do not use gmail for sensitive, important, or daily communication. Even with this bug being fixed, this demonstrates the vulnerability of centralized applications and data outside of your control. More than that, it demonstrates the infeasibility of trusting your day to day communications to beta software. My bad for doing so.
