Google Docs bug allowed strangers to take screenshots of your documents
GOOGLE has confirmed that it has mended a glitch in Google Docs that could allow hackers to steal screenshots of your private word documents.
Google has confirmed that it has finally patched a glitch in Google Docs which had allowed hackers to read your documents. The flaw was discovered back in July 9, 2020 by a security researcher, known only as Sreeram KL, who was awarded $3,133.70 as part of Google’s bug bounty program. Google offers between $500 and $31,337 for the most severe attacks identified by researchers, so based on the monetary value assigned by the team at Google, this clearly wasn’t the most concerning glitch – it could still be pretty problematic.
