He didn't name the websites in his post.

Ved told BuzzFeed that he has confidentially reported several vulnerabilities to Google in the past:

"I love Google, and I think they are a fantastic company. Though I have left Google, over the years, I have since then reported several vulnerabilities to them, which they have acknowledged and corrected. Never asked for rewards, nor spoken about them. They remain a secret between Google and me. What happened will be a fond memory for me."
