"A working version of software being developed by America Online Inc. for its new generation of Internet-linked devices has leaked out to the World Wide Web, where it is being eagerly dissected by computer wonks."
"Some technology analysts suggest the leak could present a security problem for AOL, but the company said yesterday that there is no danger of a breach in the protection of users' personal information."
"The software--code-named "Gamera," after the flying turtle monster that battled with Godzilla--has been available for download on several rogue Web sites for at least a week. It is being developed by Dulles-based AOL for use in devices such as wireless pads and kitchen-counter computers, which are expected to hit the market this holiday season."
