Even though these problems have been fixed and even though the people running hosted RSS aggregator services are reputable, I wouldn't trust my confidential subscriptions with any hosted service! You have been warned :-) !
From Fred On Something....:
I study the problem of the secure web feeds since some weeks. I read a surprising post that talks about the Gmail Atom feed service used with Bloglines this morning. An idea came up in my mind while reading the post: it is not possible%uFFFD can I really have access to login and password of people that subscribe to "secure" web feeds that use SSL and HTTP Authenticate with Bloglines? The answer is sadly: Yes I can.
