Spying on the Google desktop search tool

According to The New York Times a group of researchers from Rice University have discovered a method of spying on your Google desktop search results. Of course, being written for a general audience, the article is a little light on details, but it doesn't take too much reading between the lines to figure out what's going on.

Sheesh! Google employs about 50 gajillion PhDs and some of the best and brightest in the tech world, but somehow they seem to have failed to do even the most rudimentary security prep work on this software.
