US, EU Regulators Probe Google+ Privacy Issue

Two US states and two EU member states are reportedly investigating the recently reported breach involving Google+ that may have compromised the personal data of around 500,000 users of the social network.

Both offices of the Attorney General of Connecticut and New York had already made statements on Google’s disclosure. Likewise, Ireland and Germany’s data protection regulator said that they will be looking into the breach.

It is said that Google could potentially face a maximum fine of 300,000 euros for the breach under Germany’s old data protection law.
