Google is that kind of company that owns a huge number of services and solutions but its employees are aiming to develop new ideas and projects or even to update the existing products to make them even more powerful. Except for a limited number of programs including Google Desktop, Picasa or Firefox Toolbar, Google designed only online services that are accessible via an online interface located on the official page of every product. As you know, downloadable applications are often affected by viruses, Trojan files or spyware so it’s obvious that owning web-based is safe and more secure.
Although many users might think that Google is one of the most secure companies on the internet, the latest reported vulnerabilities are contradicting this statement, multiple products designed by the search giant being more or less affected by security flaws.
For example, one of the most known bug identified in Google’s solutions is represented by an error discovered in Gmail that deleted all the emails stored in the inbox folder for certain users. At that time, the company confirmed the problem but sustained its employees fixed the issue. Today, several users reported a new Gmail bug that removes all the saved contacts as well as the ids stored in the Gmail chat.
Because the number of the vulnerabilities identified in Google’s products is continuously increasing, I decided to write this article and inform you about the best ways to inform the company about a potential flaw, vulnerability or bug.
