A ‘most private place’: Trust Google with your data above government bodies, says Alphabet’s Eric Schmidt

Google is the “safest and most private place” to store data, Alphabet Inc. executive chairman Eric Schmidt said this week as he addressed privacy concerns over data collected by Google’s machine- learning mechanisms. Machine learning is a branch of computer science in which algorithms are constructed to learn from data and make more accurate predictions over time. Google uses such mechanisms in a variety of its services, including improving its search engine services, filtering spam in Gmail and classifying users’ photos in its Google Photos app. “We work very hard to keep people’s data private and to give [them] control over it,” Schmidt said during a live video conference with reporters in Tokyo on Tuesday. “You can control what Google keeps of you … and we keep your data protected using incredibly powerful encryption.” Schmidt also condemned government hacking of technology companies, adding that Google is a safer place to entrust your data than government agencies or bodies. “We are upset that it appears that the US government and the Chinese government … have attacked computer companies without permission,” said Schmidt.

French Researchers Hack Google Now And Siri Remotely, Silently Via Headphones

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Researches on the French government’s payroll have discovered a new way to remotely and silently seize control of personal assistants such as Google Now or Microsoft’s Siri installed on a smartphone. The brilliant hacking technique only works within short distances, and requires the target to plug microphone-enabled earphones into a mobile phone. The cyberattack exploits the headphone cord’s doubling as an antenna. Hackers then send electromagnetic signals to the earphones, which are turned into audio input. Then the mobile device interprets it as normal voice commands. Researchers Chaouki Kasm and José Lopes Esteves uncovered the hack. They warned that the security vulnerability of voice-command capable handsets could result in critical security issues. In fact, the possibilities are unlimited. Kasm and Esteves work for the French government agency L’Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d’Information (ANSSI). Its director Vincent Strubel explained that the hacking method could be used in crowded areas such as bars or airports, simultaneously hacking many smart phones in one location, according to The Verge. However, the hacking method has several limitations. For example, the microphone-enabled earphones must be plugged in, and the user must enable voice commands on the phone’s lock screen. That is the default […]

Google starts deep linking iOS apps from Safari, throws shade at Apple

Apple usually isn’t all that subtle when it comes to putting down competitors, especially Google. But, Google tends to be a bit more passive aggressive with its jabs, and that shows again in the new announcement to developers talking about how to deep link to iOS apps from Google search results in the Safari browser.This means that a search result for a location will show as a deep link that bumps users directly to that place page within an app like Yelp. 

Of course, in the announcement Google couldn’t help mentioning that not only has Android had this feature for a long …
