Two months after disclosing an error that exposed the private profile data of almost 500,000 Google+ users, Google on Monday revealed a new leak that affects more than 52 million people. The programming interface bug allowed developers to access names, ages, email addresses, occupations, and a wealth of other personal details even when they were set to be nonpublic.

The bug was introduced in a release that went live at an undisclosed date in November and was fixed a week later, Google officials said in a blog post. During the time the bug was active, developers of apps that requested permission to view profile information that a user had added to their Google+ profile received permission to view profile information about that user even when the details were set to not-public. What’s more, apps with access to users’ Google+ profile data had permission to access non-public profile data that other Google+ users shared with the consenting user. In all, the post said, 52.5 million users are affected.

“The bug did not give developers access to information such as financial data, national identification numbers, passwords, or similar data typically used for fraud or identity theft,” Monday’s post said. “No third party compromised our systems, and we have no evidence that the developers who inadvertently had this access for six days were aware of it or misused it in any way.”

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by deals on a suite of Amazon products.

While these discounts aren't quite as steep as those offered on Black Friday, there are still some good prices available. The deals do include the first major drop for the newest (and waterproof) Kindle Paperwhite e-reader, which is down to $100 for its usual $130. The Fire HD 8, arguably the only tablet under $100 worth buying, is down to $60 from its usual $80, while the latest Echo Dot and Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K are $20 and $15 off, respectively. Just note that a couple items are backordered and may not arrive until after Christmas.

If Echo and Fire devices aren't your thing, though, we also have noteworthy deals on Apple's latest 9.7-inch iPad, Microsoft's Xbox One X, Razer's well-reviewed DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse, Google Home Mini bundles, and much more. If you still have some holiday gadget gifting to do, have a look for yourself below.
