Submission + - Gmail Bug Sends Thousands Of Emails To One Man (techcrunch.com)

An anonymous reader writes: TechCrunch is reporting on an interesting Gmail bug. Apparently, if you search for Gmail and click on one of the top (and correct) results, it brings up a Compose window with an email address already filled in: the Hotmail account of a Fresno, CA man. He says he's been receiving hundreds of mostly blank emails from this every hour since yesterday. The article says it's related to the Gmail outage from earlier this afternoon.
