At least they admit a problem. Google Drive has had corruption and random file removal issues for months.
No help from Google

There are serious issues here, this should not be uncovered in a simulator; it should have been found during unit tests.
As someone who has written code for avionics, every possible state and function needs to be called and tested by the code tests. Any code that that wasn't tested cannot be flown. Any state or possible state transition that was not tested is explicitly dis-allowed.
The "vault" feature is just an extra layer of security to access the file. The files are still not end-to-end encrypted. Microsoft can still access your files, should they wish. For real encryption, encrypt at the source using Truecrypt or a automated cloud drive encryptor like SyncDocs.
Exactly, the guilty executives left with multi-million dollar bonuses.
It was reported on at the time of the hack, that Susan Mauldin, the woman in charge of the Equifax's data security, has a bachelor's degree and a master of fine arts degree in music composition from the University of Georgia, according to her LinkedIn profile. Mauldin's LinkedIn profile lists no education related to technology or security.
If that wasn't enough, news outlet MarketWatch reported hat Susan Mauldin's LinkedIn page was made private and her last name was replaced with "M", in a move that appears to keep her education background secret.
So ignorance was followed by cover-up, and payouts to the guilty. The 120 million affected people in the hacked files are the victims, but will get zero relief.
The UK government actually runs something called the "Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre".
They've looked through all the source code and so far have found no back-doors, only bugs.
You can even read Her Majesty's Government reports on it:
