Class Action Lawsuit Goes After Google for User Data Leak
Google and its parent company, Alphabet Inc., have been hit with a class action lawsuit after the company announced a “bug” had gotten into its social media platform Google Plus, exposing the information of up to 500,000 users.
The plaintiffs say that third parties that were permitted access to Google Plus user information were infected with a “bug” that exposed user information. The plaintiffs say that Google compounded the issue by failing to disclose the breach for at least seven months. Furthermore, the number of affected users is allegedly much bigger than 500,000.
Google said earlier this month that it would shut down Google Plus, the company’s long-struggling competitor to Facebook, after it discovered the security vulnerability that exposed the private data of its users.
The Google Plus Data Breach Class Action Lawsuit is Matic, et al. v. Google Inc. and Alphabet Inc., Case No. 5:18-cv-06164-EJD, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
Google+ has been around for year but it never really caught on. If you were one of the few that still had an account, then keep an eye out for this class action.
