Google + Now

In the wake of the Google + scandal, Google has removed all personal accounts but are leaving business accounts access. Recently, we had found out that Google + had a data breach, that they knew of and willingly hide from the public, since March of this year. It is now October and we only learned about it last month.

Over 500,000 accounts were affected and there is no other evidence of the bug except for the breach. They claim that it was an API bug and it was able to store data for two weeks at a time. Google+’s lack of popularity and subsequent lack of users worked in its favor here – Google says 90% of user sessions were less than five seconds.

If you are looking for more information in regards to the data breach, Google will be announcing more in relation sooner rather than later.
