Dokumenty Google: bezpečnostní problém odstraněn

Google Apps Status Dashboard přinesl informaci o možném nechtěném sdílení dokumentů v Dokumentech Google který se údajně týkal půl promile dokumentů:

We're aware of a problem with Google Docs List affecting a small subset of users. The affected users are able to access Google Docs List, but are seeing error messages and/or other unexpected behavior. We will provide an update by March 7, 2009 6:36:00 AM UTC+1 detailing when we expect to resolve the problem. Please note that this resolution time is an estimate and may change.

We've identified and fixed a bug where a very small percentage of users may have inadvertently shared some of their documents without their knowledge. The inadvertent sharing was limited to people with whom the account owner, or a collaborator with sharing rights, had previously shared a document. The issue only occurred if the document owner, or a collaborator with sharing rights, selected multiple documents and presentations from the documents list and changed the sharing permissions. This issue affected documents and presentations, but not spreadsheets. To help remedy this issue, we have used an automated process to remove collaborators and viewers from the documents that we identified as being affected. We have contacted the domain administrators or owners of the impacted docs, informing them of this fix. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Správci Google Apps byli na situaci upozorněni mailem, problém se řešil poněkud silou: bylo zrušeno veškeré sdílení.
