Google To Now Encrypt User Searches

 
 
Technology giant Google intends to broaden the campaign the company against hacking and surveillance of the government by making searches of its users more private. Google in China to defy the censorship model of the country has already implemented this. Google aims to better the information security especially since reports about US government ‘s surveillance emerged last year.
 
Encrypted search results will now be introduced by Google but date of release of his update has not been announced yet.  But the process of encryption has already begun for users in China. This update by Google in China is seen as a move by the company to defy the government in China that wants Google to redirect users to their official websites. This resulted in Google moving to Hong Kong thereby accounting for only 5% of search market in China.
 
This attempt of Google to encrypt user searches is followed by a move to encrypt the online traffic amidst their data centers post the revelations by Edward Snowden regarding the surveillance of US online traffic by the NSA.
 
As a Google spokesperson put it:
 
“The revelations of this past summer underscored our need to strengthen our networks. Among the many improvements we’ve made in recent months is to encrypt Google Search by default around the world. This builds on our work over the past few years to increase the number of our services that are encrypted by default and encourage the industry to adopt stronger security standards.”

4.6 Million Users Affected By Snapchat Hack

The news and social media was taken by storm when nearly 4.6 million accounts of social media site Snapchat were accessed by hackers who then went on to post these details online for several hours.

A website names SnapchatDB went ahead and released this information but the last 2 digits of the phone number of users were censored. This user information has been taken down but you still can find the cached version.

This event has occurred after Gibson Securoty, an Australian firm has issued a warning in the app of Snapchat, which could have been abused by the hackers.

Gibson Security released a statement on Twitter that said:

 

"We know nothing about SnapchatDB, but it was a matter of time till something like that happened,"

 

However, the hackers claimed to have used the flaws that were highlighted by Gibson Security as per TechCrunch.

As of today, Snapchat is said to be the social media site of the future and has gained an enormous amount of user base and popularity. Snapchat allows picture sharing. These shared pictures get deleted once they are viewed.

Snapchat also allows users to find friends by means of an address if it has been uploaded in the contacts book. Gibson Security had warned Snapchat of the exact same thing prior to this hack. 

As per the Gibson Security officials, Snapchat had been warned almost four months before this incident but the company did not take any precautionary measures.

Syrian Electronic Army Hacks Twitter Account Of Skype

In a horrific start to the New Year, Twitter account of Skype has been hacked by Syrian Electronic Army. The group that hacked the account also went on to post numerous tweets and looks like a typical case of phishing. 

The hacking group also posted tweets from the verified Twitter account of skype that read: 

"Don't use Microsoft emails (hotmail, outlook), they are monitoring your accounts and selling the data to the governments. More details soon #SEA."

 

Unfortunately for Skype, this tweet was RT’d or retweeted more than 8,000 times and happened to remain online for over 2 hours. There was another tweet posted from the compromised account of Skype that read:

"stop spying on people,"

The same group also hacked the Facebook page of Skype as well as a blog that is hosted on the website of Skype.

Skype has now gained access to these accounts and it does not appear that their actual services and user information was compromised. After this ordeal was over, the official Skype account tweeted this:

“You may have noticed our social media properties were targeted today. No user info was compromised. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.”

 

This event has turned out to be quite embarrassing for Skype as security lapses like this can shake the confidence of users who deposit personal details while signing up for accounts as well as bank details when they top up balance to make calls on Skype.
