Flickr discloses private photos

Tuesday, 20 February 2007, 12:15 PM EST

People started seeing strange photos in place of their own about 1/7th of the time.

This was the result of our caching servers returning random photos each time they got asked. The caching servers (called "photocaches") are a thin layer of servers which sit between your browser and our primary storage. They store the most recently requested photos in a way that's quick to access in order to speed up serving the photos you see on the site.

If you still see other people's photos, you'll need to SHIFT + REFRESH to clear out your browser.
