The night began to appear reports that in search of "Yandex" according to the documents began to "swim" documents with passwords, addresses of brothels and God knows what else. How did this happen? It turns out that "Yandex" has indexed "the public portion of the Internet" and, together with her ate not protected by privacy settings documents from Google Docs. We won't give specific references, but examples of leaks: passwords, passwords, passwords again, corporate discussion of the unsuccessful applicants, addresses, passwords again, and manifestations of the darknet.

The Documents ranked in the results of "Yandex" was not protected by the privacy settings — this means that their Creator is allowed the viewing (or even editing) to anyone need a reference.

Google itself indexes are available to all documents from Google Docs. However, the Google search is missing at least part of text files and spreadsheets with private information in the results of "Yandex".

Writes Meduza with reference to the press Secretary of "Yandex" Ilya Grabowski, "on Wednesday evening in support addressed user complaints about the problem of accessibility of files on docs.google.com". "Our security team is now tied with colleagues from Google to draw their attention to the fact that these files may be private information," he said. — "The search engine indexes only those pages that are available when you click on the links without entering a username and password".

To verify that the document in Google Docs can't view outside, need to open a file, click File — sharing and ensure that access is restricted to certain users.

Ah, security.
