Submission + - App Developer reveals Massive Security Hole in Google Play (couriermail.com.au)

CuteSteveJobs writes: The Courier Mail reports a massive security hole in Google's online app store, Google Play is revealing the names, addresses and email addresses of everyone that has ever purchased an app. Sydney app developer Dan Nolan said "Every App purchase you make on Google Play gives the developer your name, suburb and email address with no indication that this information is actually being transferred." He warned it could be used to track down and harass users who left negative reviews or refunded the app purchase, saying there is no reason for any developer to have this information at their finger tips.
