    Hmmm… i’ve checked several accounts and seen nothing but might be linked to something else such as how they originally verified… with more than a few options for verification it’s easy to see a bug appearing at some point DNS/GA/HTML/META?

    Once again shows their arrogance by refusing to comment, or take down the affected systems.

    I can’t think of any other company that would act like this, especially when the stakes for companies affected are potentially so high (competitors gaining access to critical business systems). I hope some of those affected take Google to court.

    I have not noticed any such thing but if this is true then it is the matter of great concern and Google should act swiftly before anything undesired happens.

    Yes, I noticed this issue about 3 hrs ago & quickly acted upon it. However, I didnt know it was a security error from Google’s end.

    I also thought it might be related to how verification was done, David, but if you look at Dave Naylor’s screenshot closely, he appears to have access to accounts that were verified in different ways.

    Wow google fixed that sooner then I thought they would! Good on em for getting on with fixing it in such a timely manner :)

    I had read that people were reporting analytics had the same issue, is google saying this is not true correct? We only noticed the bug for a couple of old account on WMT but nothing in analytics, so I would guess its true, but wondered if anyone had screenshots to say other wise?
