Google Buzz was just announced and released this week. Much like Facebook, they've opened up with loose security settings to seed the community. According to Tech News World, this opens up huge new areas to exploit and be at risk to malware and spam.
What are your thoughts? Is this that much of a risk? Do you even like Google wave? Does anyone find it as annoying as I do?

"they've opened up with loose security settings to seed the community"
I hope that is not true...why would you do that as a major player on the net? Has Symantec "spoken" to Google
I tend to stay away from these places/new toys so can't really comment,I have heard of Google wave and know a few people who were discussing it.
I am afraid it would annoy me that something that has potential for a lot of fun has been let down by back doors being left open to allow the Ad/spam/malware people another avenue to pester me.Bad enough being followed around the internet with the same ads....

I don't know if it has opened up the space for more exploit attacks or not but I certainly can say that
it is not at all interesting (definitely annoying), I did not like it at all.
I still do not get the purpose behind this release.
