There are quite a few known vulnerabiities with Google Desktop.
If you are interested in seeing a rather frightening demonstration of a XSS (cross site scripting) and "under" vulnerability exploited.. check out this adobe presentation from watchfire security:
Another vulnerability disovered 6/2007
Make sure you have the newest version of Google Desktop if you are going to use it.. as with any program.. it is wise to have them updating for security patches (windows, antivirus, etc)
Have they fixed it and made it free of vulnerabilities? who knows.. maybe until the next is found...?
