According to the Telegraph a team of security specialists have uncovered a serious security flaw on the new T-Mobile G1, the first Google Android powered device. The handset hits stores in the UK Thursday.

According to Charles Miller, one of the security experts, the flaw is in the G1 web browser. The flaw could allow hackers to trick the G1 browser into visiting a rouge website.

The rouge website could install software secretly to do things like record keystrokes. You can imagine the possibilities if the keystrokes were say the passwords to your online accounts. Miller refused to release details of the flaw, but says Google is aware of the issue.
