Google delivers mass mailing worm for free !

Your Adsense
Google 'accidentally' sent out e-mail containing a mass mailing worm to about 50,000 members of an e-mail discussion list focused on its Google Video Blog, the company said Tuesday.

Google said in a statement, posted late Tuesday night, "On Tuesday evening, three posts were made to the Google Video Blog-group that should not have been posted. Some of these posts may have contained a virus called W32/Kapser.A@mm -- a mass mailing worm. If you think you have downloaded this virus from the group or an e-mail message, we recommend you run your anti virus program to remove it,".

What is happening here - Problems of a company growing too fast ?

Google has been regarded as a company by the nerds for the commoners (i remember having read that candidates go through 8/10 technical rounds before getting selected) - and if such a thing happens from them I can only think of two reasons
  1. They wanted to do it - am sure this is not the reason !
  2. It just happened - Given the quality of people working there the only possibility is that there was some process flaw. But well Google really needs to tie up things and do it quick.Google has seen a growing number of technical glitches lately, something observers are attributing to the company's break-neck growth over the past few years. One month ago, hackers found a way to publish a fake post on Google's official blog. The company also experienced service disruptions with its Blogger service recently that have left some users fuming.
