Google+ to go offline after security breach discovered
Following an exposé by WSJ that revealed Google had kept a huge bug in their Google+ social network under wraps, the search giant has decided to shut it down by late 2019. The bug might have enabled malicious apps to extract profile data such as name, gender, email address, occupation, and age. To make matters worse, Google isn’t sure how many profiles could have been compromised as they only keep log data for two weeks.
