Google leaks Whois data for over 282,000 protected domains

2015/03/13

Softpedia - (International) Cisco Systems' Talos researchers reported to Google that private information such as names, physical and email addresses, and phone numbers belonging to 282,867 domains registered through Google Apps' registrar, eNom, were leaked for nearly two years due to a software defect that did not extend the company's unlisted registration service, potentially exposing them to spam, spear-phishing attacks, or identity theft.
