Introducing YippieMove '09. Easy email transfers. Now open for all destinations.

Today when I logged into Google Docs I discovered that I had a new document. With Google Doc’s collaboration feature, this is nothing shocking. What was weird was the following:

  • I don’t know the person who shared the document
  • I never received any notification regarding the document

When looking closer I saw something really interesting. The document was shared with ‘Everyone.’ I immediately became curious about this and tried to replicate this myself, which I unfortunately failed.

I have no idea what the person sharing the document did to accomplish this, but it’s a quite serious problem. Somehow I do not think the person sharing the document intended to share it with ‘Everyone.”

A serious Google Docs sharing bug?

After talking to a few other Google Docs users, the document does not appear to be shared with everyone. Please let us know if you see the same document in your Docs too.
