Data of 150,000 Gmail accounts goes up in smoke

Posted on Monday, February 28 2011 @ 19:43:54 CET by


Google is currently investigating a fluke that deleted data of an estimated 150,000 users. As Engadget reports, Twitter is being flooded by complaints of Google users who have seen their messages, attachments and Google Chat logs gone up in smoke.
No fix yet, but Google's revised its estimate as to how many users might have been affected by the issue -- "less than 0.08%" -- which means we're probably looking at closer to 150,000 individuals, rather than 500,000. We're assuming that the revised estimate means that the initial count wasn't precise, and not that customers are ditching Gmail in droves.
Google expects a resolution for all users in the near future, but for me the issue once again highlights the dangers of storing data in the cloud.
