Not even a month has passed since the last scandal related to Yandex and the leak of important documents in Google Docs, and history has repeated itself. This time, attentive Internet users noticed that if you search Google documents for such speaking queries as "schedule" and "salary", you can find several very interesting files.
A similar situation again raised a number of questions for Yandex representatives, because indexing confidential data in a search engine is the last thing that netizens expect. Maybe it's time to think about giving up the use of file storage, and completely switch to instant messengers?
Hardly, because judging by the comments of the Yandex press service, the system took into account only those documents that were publicly linked on the Internet. The company has not changed the algorithms of the search engine, which means that if anyone can be blamed for the leakage of classified documents, it is the users themselves. Well, all that remains is to take our word for it.
And, of course, we recommend that you take care to close your data in Google Docs from outsiders, because the last time a leak appeared even those documents that users exchanged anonymously. You can read detailed instructions on setting up Google Docs in our other article.
