The Wall Street Journal separately reported Monday that Google executives delayed announcing problems with Google+ because of concerns about its reputation and the danger of sparking new pushes for regulation.
As for the possible data exposure, Google found a bug in an API that developers could use that exposed profile data for up to 500,000 people, even if you had marked it as private.
The data being stolen includes full names, email addresses, birth dates, gender, profile photos, places lived, occupation and relationship status.
Google admitted in the blog post disclosing the bug that usage of Google+ has dropped off in recent years.
Around 500,000 users were affected by this, potentially. The lawsuit was blocked in the High Court on Monday. Google plans to shut down its social network and announce new privacy measures in response to the incident, the paper said.
In March, a security audit revealed a software bug that gave third-party apps access to Google+ private profile data people meant to share only with friends.
Google's own social media platform i.e. Google+ is now shutting down permanently for consumers. Today, after over 7 years of existence, Google is shutting down Google+ for good-although its low user base surprisingly wasn't the main factor behind this decision.

East Japan Railway Co. said it will suspend all train services on its lines in the Tokyo Metropolitan area after 8 p.m. The bullet train service between Kumamoto and central Kagoshima was also halted, according to the Kyushu Railway Co.
But managers at the company chose not to go public with the bug, however, because they anxious that it would invite scrutiny from regulators, particularly in the wake of Facebook's recent security missteps.
"The consumer version of Google+ now has low usage and engagement: 90 percent of Google+ user sessions are less than five seconds", Google admitted today.
"Our review showed that our Google+ APIs, and the associated controls for consumers, are challenging to develop and maintain".
Google came under criticism for refusing to send a top executive to a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on 5 September about efforts to counteract foreign influence in USA elections and political discourse. Google is finally killing its bad social network Google+. In a blog post by the company highlighting its findings, it's stated that 90 percent of all Google+ visits last fewer than five seconds.
Google did not specify how long the software flaw existed, or why it waited to disclose it.
It also comes just weeks after a separate report in The Wall Street Journal detailed how the developers of some third-party apps are able to read users' email. "Over the coming months, we will provide consumers with additional information, including ways they can download and migrate their data".
