Google to shut down Google+ after failing to disclose user data leak

Google to shut down Google+ after failing to disclose user data leak

October 9, 2018

Google is set to shut down its social network Google+ after exposing data from up to 500,000 users to external developers by a bug that was present for more than two years in its systems.

Google did not tell its users about the security issue when it was found in March because it didn’t appear that anyone had gained access to user information.

 



Google said it had found no evidence that outside developers were aware of the security flaw and no indication that any user profiles were touched. 

Google had reviewed the issue and the flaw was fixed in an update made in March.

"I think Google does have a public relationship issue and this now makes their lack of openness even worse," Ivan Feinseth, an analyst at Tigress Financial Partners said.
