Google software bug shared private online documents

Yeah.... sorry about your alleged privacy of your documents.

Google has confirmed that a software bug exposed documents thought to be privately stored in the Internet giant's online Docs application service.

The problem was fixed by the weekend and is believed to have affected only .05 percent of the digital documents at a Google Docs service that provides text-handling programs as services on the Internet.

"We've identified and fixed a bug where a very small percentage of users shared some of their documents inadvertently," Google Docs Product Manager Jennifer Mazzon wrote in a message at the firm's website on Saturday.

Wow!

(And that's more at the lack of comment here than the actual lapse itself)
