Google Drive Vulnerability Leaks User's Private Data

Google Drive Vulnerability
Another privacy and security issue has been discovered in Google Drive which can cause leak of your personal and sensitive data stored on the cloud service.
Google explained said that the flaw only affected a "small subset of file types” in Google Drive. Now this flaw has been patched by Google.
The security issue is relevant only if all four of these conditions apply:
  1. The file was uploaded to Google Drive
  2. The file was not converted to Docs, Sheets, or Slides (i.e., remained in its original format such as .pdf, .docx, etc.)
  3. The owner changed sharing settings so that the document was available to “anyone with the link”    
  4. The file contained hyperlinks to third-party HTTPS websites in its content
