*Bug #1:* _*The "rainbow spam"*_ *How was it discovered?* Though it was first discovered by a user called Leo McFly, his post was taken down in just 2 days due to hate. AFAIK, I was the first person to manage to recreate the bug, and show others how to do it. I also created the most reshared version of this bug, with a combined count of 2486 reshares (linked below). *So what is this bug?* This bug is an exploitation of the way Google+ scales and renders images. Normally, Google limits the height of images in your stream to about twice the width of your device; this prevents people from posting really long pictures and others having to scroll through them to get to the next post... Or so they thought. Using this bug allows you to post a picture that exceeds the maximum post height, forcing viewers to scroll past it for a long amount of time. This bug is preformed by posting a long picture twice in one post by having a copy of the picture. After it posts, simply delete the second one and refresh it. *So why does this work?* It took me a good while to figure it out, but I believe I have a fairly good understanding of it now. When you post one picture, Google detects if it is longer than the specified limit. If it isn't, it sets the post's height to the pictures height. If it is over the limit, it overrides it and sets it to the preset height. But, when you post two pictures in one post, Google *automatically* sets the post's height to the preset about of pixels, no matter the height of the picture. When a picture is deleted from the album, Google recalculates the height based on the height of the remaining picture. *But,* Google fails to check the height limit during this process. This allows for the picture to be as long as you want.

Bug #1:
The "rainbow spam"

How was it discovered?

Though it was first discovered by a user called Leo McFly, his post was taken down in just 2 days due to hate. AFAIK, I was the first person to manage to recreate the bug, and show others how to do it. I also created the most reshared version of this bug, with a combined count of 2486 reshares (linked below).

So what is this bug?

This bug is an exploitation of the way Google+ scales and renders images. Normally, Google limits the height of images in your stream to about twice the width of your device; this prevents people from posting really long pictures and others having to scroll through them to get to the next post... Or so they thought. Using this bug allows you to post a picture that exceeds the maximum post height, forcing viewers to scroll past it for a long amount of time. This bug is preformed by posting a long picture twice in one post by having a copy of the picture. After it posts, simply delete the second one and refresh it.
