Google+ had security bug, did not report it and will shutdown consumer version

Google is shutting down Google+ the consumer version of Google+ in ten months.

Google+ is better suited as an enterprise product where co-workers can engage in internal discussions on a secure corporate social network.

A security bug allowed third-party developers to access Google+ user profile data since 2015 until Google discovered and patched it in March, 2018. Almost 500,000 users had their data potentially exposed.

Google says it has no evidence the data was misused by the 438 apps that could have had access.

The company decided against informing the public.

  1. This is why the entire company should be shut down and not allowed to do business until a thorough investigation is conducted, RICO-style. After all…what was good for Kavanaugh is even better for the enemies of the GOP! “When you strike at a king, you must kill him.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson (but libtards don’t read RWE…because he’s a privileged white man)

  6. The GDPR implications are interesting. They only had a rolling 2 week log of the problematic API, and from that it looked clean. So if something bad happened, it happened earlier than March.
