150,000 Gmail accounts reset and contents deleted

Ooops

Word about the accidental resetting of Gmail accounts has been spreading on the Internet in the last two days as users Tweeted that their e-mail accounts have been stripped clean of all e-mails, attachments and chat logs collected in them over the years.

Google itself confirmed the glitch and its results, saying that less than 0.08% of the Google Mail user base has been affected. The issues has still not been resolved and some users still can't access their accounts.

Less than 0.08% doesn't make it sound better.

Google, you fecked up royally.
