If this is all found to be true which mot likely it will be the FTC is expected to fine Google upwards of $10 million.

Bloomberg reports:

“Google Inc. (GOOG) is negotiating with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over how big a fine it will have to pay for its breach of Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s Safari Internet browser, a person familiar with the matter said.

The fine could amount to more than $10 million dollars, said the person, who declined to be identified because the talks are confidential. The fine would be the first by the FTC for a violation of Internet privacy as the agency steps up enforcement of consumers’ online rights. “

Google’s Safari breach was first discovered by Stanford researcher Johnathan Mayer, who published his findings on his black blog back on February 16th.
