Google Reportedly Hid Massive Data Breach From Users

Private data from hundreds of thousands of Google+ users was reportedly exposed and it’s said that Google decided to hide the breach from those who were affected by it. The Wall Street Journal reports citing sources close to the matter that Google chose to not disclose the breach because it feared increased regulatory scrutiny. The report adds that Google discovered and patched the issue earlier this year in March.

The scribe reports based on documents it reviewed that a software vulnerability enabled third-party developers to access private Google+ data between 2015 and 2018. An internal memo mentioned that even though there wasn’t any evidence of the vulnerability being misused, there was not way to know this for sure.
