12 Dec Google Expedites Shutdown of G+ Due to Privacy Issues
Google said this week that it will be shutting down its G+ social media service four months ahead of schedule, after finding another bug which can be used by attackers to access private user data.
Google assured that if found no evidence that the software flaw had been used to access the private information including details such as name, email, gender and age on 52.5 million affected Google+ accounts.
Apps that use Google+ data to personalize services with user authorization will lose access in 90 days. However, developing Google+ for business customers would remain a focus, the company said.
