While users were struggling to use Gmail‘s services yesterday for a long time, Google fixed a critical bug that might’ve let attackers send spoofed emails. It took Google a whopping 137 days to close the bug after security researcher Allison Husain first reported it to the company.

The bug could mimic any Gmail or GSuite user to send emails. The bug could also let attackers bypass protection protocols that protect you from spoofing.
