Leak shows how a Google Nexus 6 with a fingerprint reader would have looked like

Back in January, Motorola’s former CEO, Dennis Woodside, confirmed that Motorola and Google originally planned to equip last year’s Google Nexus 6 with a fingerprint reader. If you’ve been wondering how a fingerprint-sensing Nexus 6 would have looked like, a new leak from China might help.

As the former Motorola CEO previously announced, the Nexus 6 was originally planned to integrate a fingerprint reader on the back of the handset. More to the point, the sensor was supposed to be located within the large circular dimple on the back, where Motorola’s logo is placed on the …

Google to remove revenge porn from search results

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Google said it would soon create a process for victims of revenge porn to request the removal of private photographs from the search engine’s results. Revenge porn is a digital phenomenon that entails the distribution of sexually explicit images without a person’s consent, typically as a form of retribution or blackmail. In a blog post Friday, Google’s senior vice president for search, Amit Singhal, said the tech company would post a web form in the coming weeks where requests can be submitted to remove images. “Our philosophy has always been that Search should reflect the whole web. But revenge porn images are intensely personal and emotionally damaging, and serve only to degrade the victims—predominantly women,” Singhal wrote. Of course, the images will still remain on the Internet, but they’ll be much harder to find without the help of the world’s biggest search engine. The new policy is not unlike existing rules that allow people to request the removal of sensitive personal information such as bank account numbers and signatures from Google’s search results, Singhal said. Reddit, an online bulletin, has also cracked down on revenge porn, largely because of the dissemination of nude celebrity photos obtained by hackers. Authorities have […]

Google Voices Concerns Regarding Government Warrants, Seeks to Protect Users

AH-GOOGLE-IO-2014-144

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

 Powered by Max Banner Ads Google has joined advocacy organisations such as the ACLU in voicing their concerns about proposed Amendments to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 41 by sending a comment letter to The Judicial Conference Advisory Committee on Criminal Rules. This rule outlines how warrants are issued to obtain information. This rule places limitations on how and what types of warrants may be issued. More specifically it states that a judge may not issue a search and seizure warrant outside his or her jurisdiction though there are exceptions to this rule. The Advisory Committee on the Rules of Criminal Procedure wants to include new rules for conducting “remote access” searches of electronic storage media. It stipulates that the physical location of the media must be concealed through electronic means. It also includes provisions related to botnet investigations in some cases. What does all that mean? Well, Google claims that the new provisions that The Advisory Committee on the Rules of Criminal Procedure have proposed will have a huge impact concerning warrant power and that because it will give the Department of Justice (DoJ)  such far-reaching power, that this matter should be left to Congress to handle, and not an […]

Google leaves most Android users exposed to hackers

People with Android smartphones and tablets running older versions of the mobile operating system — around 60 percent of all Android users — are going to have to live with a security flaw Google has decided not to fix. A known security bug in the default, unbranded Web browser for Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and older versions of Google’s mobile OS will go unpatched, Google’s chief of security for Android wrote in a Google+ post on Friday. “Keeping software up to date is one of the greatest challenges in security,” Adrian Ludwig wrote. Because the browser app is based on a version of the WebKit browser engine that’s now more than two years old, fixing the vulnerability in Android Jelly Bean and earlier versions is “no longer practical to do safely,” he wrote. Google confirmed on Saturday that Ludwig’s post is the company’s official position on the matter. The company’s decision has upset security experts, who worry hackers will be able to easily target the hundreds of millions of people using phones and tablets that run older versions of Android. Ludwig contends the number of people potentially affected by the vulnerability is “shrinking every day.” But for security professionals, it’s […]
