Google fined in Street View probe

Google has been fined $25,000 (£15,700) after US authorities found the internet giant stalled an investigation into its Street View mapping feature.

The Federal Communications Commission said Google "deliberately impeded and delayed" the investigation for months.

The online search leader did not respond to requests for information and documents, according to the agency.

The inquiry began in 2010 after Google said Street View cars had inadvertently logged unsecured Wi-Fi data.

Information gathered by passing Street View cars in more than 30 countries included passwords, emails and other data that was being transmitted wirelessly over unprotected routers, according to the FCC.

The FCC said it still had "significant factual questions" about the Street View project that have not yet been been answered.

The agency has subpoenaed a Google engineer who developed the software code that the company used to collect the data.

But the unnamed engineer invoked his Fifth Amendment rights against incriminating himself, so that he would not have to testify.

The California-based internet giant disputed the FCC findings.

"As the FCC notes in their report, we provided all the materials the regulators felt they needed to conclude their investigation and we were not found to have violated any laws," the company said in a prepared statement.

'Chief executives of the search engine, Google, vowed in a recent meeting with Israeli prime minister to render full service to the Mossad spy agency. "Investment in Israel was among the best decisions ever made by Google," Google chief executive Eric Schmidt said during the meeting with Netanyahu. During the meeting, Netanyahu gave Schmidt a sketch which showed the Israeli flag hoisting above Google's emblem. Western media reports had also earlier revealed that Google renders continued and special services to several spying agencies, including the CIA.'

Google edition adopts 'Palestine'

Composite image of google.ps 

Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from "Palestinian Territories" to "Palestine".

The change, introduced on 1 May, means google.ps now displays "Palestine" in Arabic and English under Google's logo.

Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed.

In November, the UN gave Palestine the status of "non-member observer state".

The decision by the General Assembly was strongly opposed by Israel and the United States. Previously, Palestine only had "observer entity" status.

It followed an unsuccessful Palestinian bid to join the international body as a full member state in 2011 because of a lack of support in the UN Security Council.

Palestinians in general seek recognition for the state they are trying to establish and the adoption of the name Palestine.

Israel considers any formal use of the word Palestine as pre-judging the outcome of currently stalled peace talks. In much of Israel's official terminology the West Bank is referred to as Judea and Samaria.

'Right direction'

In a statement given to the BBC on Friday, Google spokesman Nathan Tyler said: "We're changing the name 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine' across our products. We consult a number of sources and authorities when naming countries.

"In this case, we are following the lead of the UN, Icann [the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers], ISO [International Organisation for Standardisation] and other international organisations."

The Palestinian Authority (PA) welcomed Google's decision.

"This is a step in the right direction, a timely step and one that encourages others to join in and give the right definition and name for Palestine instead of Palestinian territories," Dr Sabri Saidam, advisor to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, told the BBC.

"Most of the traffic that happens now happens in the virtual world and this means putting Palestine on the virtual map as well as on the geographic maps," he added.

Dr Saidam said that since the UN vote on 29 November, the PA had written to international companies, including Google, asking them to replace their usage of "Palestinian Territories" with "Palestine".

Isn't Eric himself a jew?

Plus what difference is it going to make if Google tags its search engine homepage with Palestine? Should we be happy with such dole outs?

Internet itself is an American military invention - I strongly feel the US already has all the data.

Brother, your post got a thumbs up for the second half only. The first half however should have been a little more encouraging.

Its a small step in the right direction.

Soon InshaAllah, filastine will be in the hands of Imam Mehdi and his army coming from khurasan.

Lets not forget also that Allah has placed a group of mujahideen in Palestine at all times to protect the holy land.

We forget about Palestinians and Palestine, but when these sort of things pop up in the news, then we remember then for one day only. I look at Googles step as a huge step in the right direction. Everyone keeps upto date with these giants Google, just like what happened with China and their rules. It hits the headlines and people start enquiring. Those not familiar with Palestinian situations will wonder what going on and maybe look into what's going on! Who knows what can happen from this small step.

Huston took one small step on the moon (maybe) but it took things so much further.

Did anyone get to read the newspapers today.

I can't be bothered about them, but I was told that today's Metro paper in London had an article about Google and Microsoft.

Apparently, Microsoft have accused Google of spying on everyone that uses Google, gmail, YouTube, playstore, anything associated with Google, yep including me and my Android.

Anyways, they spy on every email sent or received and they check for key words and have them stored for checking later.

So, if you guys are having conversations with words that they would consider illegal, then be warned. You have been tagged, as well as all those whom you sent it too.

Pretty sad and pathetic. But if the government want to stitch you up, they just have to link you to one email.

There are Positives in life and some Negatives, especially with Google. This one is definitely Positive for this case.

Google 'reveals user' over Gmail child abuse images

Google has said it searches Gmail to prevent the spread of child abuse imagery.

Google has revealed the identity of a user after discovering child abuse imagery in the man's Gmail account in Houston, Texas, according to a local news report.

It alerted a child protection agency, which notified the police and the man was arrested, KHOU 11 News reported.

Google told the BBC it would not comment on individual accounts.

The arrest raises questions over the privacy of personal email and Google's role in policing the web.

In April, Google updated its terms and conditions to say: "Our automated systems analyse your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customised search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored."

This occurred after a class-action lawsuit against the company over email scanning was dismissed earlier this year. At the time, Google said that "a person has no legitimate expectation of privacy in information he voluntarily turns over to third parties".

In April Google also stopped scanning more than 30 million Gmail accounts linked to an educational scheme following reports that the scans might have breached a US privacy law.

Facebook has also faced a similar class-action lawsuit over message scanning.

Only snippets have been posted above, see source for more



It's great to see such policing, but of course there will be chaos on privacy laws now. So many users will fear the consequences of what they share.

My policy/opinion on such a thing? Don't do anything wrong and you'll be fine. That means don't send or receive emails with sensitive material like personal pictures and promotion of particular political parties from around the world, good or bad :)

Careful, Google is watching you. (So is Microsoft, Yahoo, Apple, Everyone...)

It looks as though there is a game of one upmanship between Google and Microsoft. Not too long after Google managed to have a sex offender arrested by the police after the Internet search giant discovered a chunk of child abuse images on his Gmail account via email scanning, only to have a subsequent search warrant stumbling upon similar content on the man’s home computer which led to his arrest, here comes Microsoft who has also managed to pick out someone who shared child abuse images on his OneDrive account.

Apparently, Microsoft discovered an image that involves a “young girl” which has been touted to be saved to a OneDrive account which falls under the ownership of a man who is in his twenties, hailing from Pennsylvania. The very same person was discovered later on to have made attempts to send a couple of illegal images from a Microsoft live.com email address.

His arrest happened on July 31 after Microsoft came into contact with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s CyberTipline, which is the very same route that Google took. Following that, referred details of Microsoft’s findings were sent over to the police. The man has allegedly admitted to having received said images via the chat app Kik Messenger, as well as to “trading and receiving images of child pornography on his mobile cellular device.”

Google takes on top hacker George Hotz for Project Zero

Google logo
Google's Project Zero will find flaws in its own and other companies' software
 

Google has assembled a team to spot critical bugs and vulnerabilities - and taken on one of the world's most notorious hackers as an intern.

George Hotz, 24, is best known for hacking Sony's PlayStation 3 and Apple's iPhone, actions that have seen him subject to legal action.

Mr Hotz is part of Google's Project Zero, a new effort to identify problems within any software, not just Google's.

A public database of vulnerabilities will be published by the company.

It will give information on how long it took companies to react to the bug report and issue a fix.

"Once the bug report becomes public (typically once a patch is available), you'll be able to monitor vendor time-to-fix performance, see any discussion about exploitability, and view historical exploits and crash traces," explained Chris Evans, the Google employee heading the project.

Industrial espionage

The "well-staffed" team will focus on finding so-called zero-day vulnerabilities. This is the term given to problems with software that had not previously been identified, meaning hackers have the chance to exploit a bug fully before it is patched - fixed - by developers. 

"You should be able to use the web without fear that a criminal or state-sponsored actor is exploiting software bugs to infect your computer, steal secrets or monitor your communications," Mr Evans continued.

"Yet in sophisticated attacks, we see the use of 'zero-day' vulnerabilities to target, for example, human rights activists or to conduct industrial espionage. This needs to stop.

"We think more can be done to tackle this problem."

Part of that effort requires bringing on the types of people that were previously the object of technology firms' ire.

Mr Hotz - known as geohot online - was taken to court by Sony after he hacked the PlayStation 3 so it could play pirated games.

The case was settled out of court, with Mr Hotz agreeing to not target Sony products in future.

Google also felt the sharp end of Mr Hotz's hacking ability - he was able to hack the firm's Chrome operating system.

In contrast to the Sony lawsuit, Mr Hotz was awarded a $150,000 (£88,000) prize as part of a competition arranged by manufacturer HP.

"I think what we've seen in the past 18-24 months is a change in attitude from a lot of companies on how to handle vulnerabilities in their applications," said security expert Brian Honan, who noted that Mr Hotz had also worked for Facebook.

"We've seen Google be very proactive in this, but other companies like Facebook and Microsoft all have 'bug bounty' programmes whereby you can report a bug and be financially compensated."

Mr Honan did not think that Google calling out other firms on security would backfire.

"Other companies may begrudgingly accept Google reporting a vulnerability," he said.

"But at the same time, most companies do now have a progressive attitude to receiving reports - I don't see them looking at Google in a negative way."

Use This Trick To See A Map Of Everywhere Google Knows You've Been

If you have a Gmail account or use any of Google's apps, there's a good chance Google has some of your location data stored in its systems.

Luckily, there's an easy way to see exactly what Google knows about where you've been, and you can even see a map of past locations you've visited.

This all depends on whether you've enabled two settings tied to your Google account: location reporting and location history. Of course Google lets you turn these settings off at any time, and even offers step-by-step instructions.

But you're interested in seeing what's already been recorded.

First, sign in to whichever Gmail or Google account you use the most.

Then head on over to this little-known Google Maps website, where you'll be greeted by a screen like this.

 

Google Maps Location website

Business Insider

 

You could see some data points pop up immediately or you might see nothing; it all depends on if and when your phone recorded your location for apps such as Google Maps.

The easiest way to thoroughly search your location history is to change the "Show" ticker from 1 Day to 30 Days, which will let you see all of your location data by the month. You can then work backward by the month until you start to see the red data points and lines pop up.

Here, for example, you can see all the places I walked around my college campus this May. Since I used Google Maps during my move to New York, I can see my exact road trip:

 

Google Maps Location data

 

You can also toggle between a traditional map and satellite view:

Google Maps Location History

If you still can't find anything, don't worry — it just means that you probably haven't authorized Google or any of its apps to report and record your location.

You'll notice that Google thankfully offers a quick way to "Delete all history" or to "Delete history from this time period," so you can eliminate or alter your location history accordingly.

And remember, if you want to turn off location reporting and location history from your Google account and apps, you can follow the official instructions over here.

Everything thing you do, every video you watch, every search you make - adds to your profile.

This is not just if you have a Google account, this is also PC based. Everything is stored so they know who you are and what you are, even when no one else will ever know.

It seems like they want Godly powers :(




Otherwise, use Explorer or Firefox or Chrome to sign in to your gmail and use another to surf the web for everything else Halal, because you obviously won't be searching haram :)

At the end of the day, there's no way out :(

Using your mobile Device? then you are already locked into submission because you have to have an account of some sort to use apps etc.
