Google has pushed forward the shutdown of its failed Google social network following the discovery of a major data breach that exposed personal data of 52.2 million users. Details of the latest breach come just two months after Google announced that a bug put the data of 500,000 Google users at risk. The bug prompted Google to announce that Google would officially shut down in August 2019, however this has now been expedited to April. The company said there was no evidence of user data being misused in either instance. Google's vice president of product management David Thacker explained in a blog post how the latest bug was discovered after testing a software update introduced in November.
