'Short-term' software glitch affects Gmail users
April 7 , 2015
A majority of Gmail users across the world were affected by what Google called a temporary software glitch, which led to safety warnings and errors.
Though people were able to access Gmail, they experienced “unexpected” behavior, the search giant said. The problem occurred after Google did not renew an important part of the software.
The company’s own security service, Authority G2, is responsible for administering security certificates for Google.
After several users raised the issue on online forums, the problem was solved, reports said.
