Google looking for CEO Sundar Pichai's replacement? Job posting surprises LinkedIn users

LinkedIn users were surprised to see that Google was looking for a replacement for CEO Sundar Pichai. If you are among the ones who spotted this dream job then we must be the bearer of bad news and say that that replacement notification on LinkedIn was fake.

The job was posted by an online recruiter from Netherlands, Michel Rijnders, who exposed a loophole and revealed that a bug allowed him to create job postings for Google as well as LinkedIn CEOs. He added that he was able to pull this off with no additional cost.

Michel Rijnders exposed the bug that could allow anyone to exploit the recruitment platform and accumulate sensitive details of users. Rijnders added that LinkedIn should not allow users to post jobs for other companies or at least have a disclaimer saying that the posting has not been authorised by the company.

The bug allowed users to edit a job posting after a job has been posted by the company to resemble an official-looking job opening.
