colinneagle (2544914) writes "Flickr has discovered a software bug that made some users' private photos public for as long as 20 days. As a precaution, Flickr set all public photos to private. The result is "bad" links across the web that cause the "currently unavailable" error message. Ironically, Flickr less than a week ago released some tips for safer photo and privacy sharing settings, as part of Microsoft's Safer Internet Day. At the same time, the company was quietly restoring users' private photos that had been made public. However, posts to Flickr user forums show that many continue to struggle get their public photos restored or even find out if anyone had seen their private photos." Link to Original Source
