Google introduce alert system to avoid state-sponsored cyber attack
Internet search engine giant Google has said that a user might have become the target of malware or phishing, requests for some of their personal details from a party pretending to be a trustworthy source. Google has reportedly introduced an alert system that would warn its users when it thinks they may be the targets of a state-sponsored cyber attack.
The company said it would bring up a banner highlighting the danger when users are logged into their Google Account. An attached link will suggest actions to protect their data from being hijacked such as the use of tougher passwords and suggested system updates.
However company has not reveal exactly what would trigger the alerts. It has only said that it would be based on the belief that a user might have become the target of malware or phishing, requests for some of their personal details from a party pretending to be a trustworthy source.
Google's vice-president of security engineering wrote on its blog that you might ask how we know this activity is state-sponsored, but we can't go into the details without giving away information that would be helpful to these bad actors, but our detailed analysis - as well as victim reports - strongly suggests the involvement of states or groups that are state-sponsored, he added.
