    Alon Altman, a senior software engineer at Google, pressured the company to sabotage President Trump’s Android phone, according to new evidence released via James Damore’s class-action lawsuit against the company. Calling on the tech giant to use the “full economic force [of] Google for good”, Altman also suggested deleting the gmail accounts of Trump, his administration, and his aides for “abuse.” Altman – who is still employed by the tech giant – also called on Google to blacklist “alt-right’ sites on the Google ad network (she falsely included Breitbart News in this category — an assertion refuted by a Harvard...

    In light of the data issues that have been publicized as of late, I am seriously looking to dump Gmail, Fakebook, et. al., would like some suggestions for other email services that I would have less concern about my data being taken. I already use DuckDuckGo, so that part is good.
  • What's next in the investigation of those missing FBI texts

    Washington Examiner ^ | 1/23/18 | Byron York
    Congressional investigators believe they are barely beginning to answer the questions raised by the text messages between the FBI's Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. For several reasons:1) Strzok and Page were more prolific texters than anyone knew. In a statement late Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said FBI investigators have found "over 50,000 texts" in their review of Strzok-Page communications. 2) Even with all those texts, the FBI says it cannot find the couple's messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 — a critical time in the Trump-Russia affair. It's probably safe to say there is not a...
  • FBI Didn't Tell US Targets as Russian Hackers Hunted Emails

    The FBI failed to notify scores of U.S. officials that Russian hackers were trying to break into their personal Gmail accounts despite having evidence for at least a year that the targets were in the Kremlin's crosshairs, The Associated Press has found. Nearly 80 interviews with Americans targeted by Fancy Bear, a Russian government-aligned cyberespionage group, turned up only two cases in which the FBI had provided a heads-up. Even senior policymakers discovered they were targets only when the AP told them, a situation some described as bizarre and dispiriting. "It's utterly confounding," said Philip Reiner, a former senior director...

    It’s like a bad spy movie involving a third-world government. Or perhaps a slap stick comedy. The Secretary of State of the United States reading, sending, receiving sensitive emails with national security secrets, threats and classified or top secret intelligence over Google’s public Gmail. We expect this from chatting soccer moms but not from the top diplomat of the United States and her aides. But it gets even worse. The FBI either never discovered this blatant and clandestine violation of federal laws or did and simply covered it up. Following the Benghazi consulate attack in 2012, then Secretary of State...

    Google plans to abandon its longstanding practice of scanning user email in its Gmail service to serve targeted advertising. Google said it does not scan the email of paying corporate customers of its G Suite of services, but it made the policy change — announced in a company blog post on Friday — on its free consumer version to eliminate confusion and create one uniform policy toward Gmail. As it builds its Google Cloud business for selling internet infrastructure and services to corporate customers, Google is trying to ease concerns that it will use data from corporate customers to help...

  • A Clinton Campaign Aide’s Typo Allowed Hackers To Access John Podesta’s Email Account

    The Daily Caller ^ | December 13, 2016 | Chuck Ross
    A Clinton campaign aide says that a typo in a March 19 email sent to John Podesta is to blame for opening the campaign chairman’s Gmail account up to Russian cyber hackers. The IT aide, Charles Delavan, tells The New York Times that his error — typing the word “legitimate” instead of “illegitimate” to describe a hacker’s email — continues to haunt him. “This is a legitimate email,” Delavan wrote to Clinton campaign aide Sara Latham after she forwarded him an spear phishing email designed to look like official correspondence from Google. “John needs to change his password immediately,” Delavan...

    In the powerful digital world, ‘Kill the Messenger’ has been simplified to ‘Kill the Message’. Everybody, including America’s most dangerous enemies got emails from Hillary Clinton’s unsecured, bathroom email server, but if yours are being serviced by Gmail, no one’s getting them and haven’t for some time. Google, Gmail’s owner, has been directing your emails to ‘Spam’ and ‘Promotions’ Tabs. In other words, everywhere but where you intended them to be. Worth repeating: Since at least May of 2016 Google which controls the Gmail email flow has been deliberately directing email messages into your spam tab or one of its...

    SecureWorks® Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) researchers track the activities of Threat Group-4127[1] (TG-4127), which targets governments, military, and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Components of TG-4127 operations have been reported under the names APT28, Sofacy, Sednit, and Pawn Storm. CTU™ researchers assess with moderate confidence that the group is operating from the Russian Federation and is gathering intelligence on behalf of the Russian government.[snip] The Hillary for America presidential campaign owns the hillaryclinton.com domain, which is used for the campaign website (www.hillaryclinton.com) and for email addresses used by campaign staff.

    JUNE 28--The broad spear phishing campaign targeting the e-mail accounts of Hillary Clinton campaign officials has yielded hackers a wide assortment of internal memos and other communications, according to documents provided to The Smoking Gun.The attack--which investigators believe is a Russian government operation--has recently focused on the Gmail accounts of scores of Hillary for America staffers, according to SecureWorks, a research firm that published its findings earlier this month.The firm contends that the hacking campaign has targeted “individuals managing Clinton's communications, travel, campaign finances, and advising her on policy.” The assault, which reportedly began in mid-March, relied on a spoofed...

    Biggest credential cache amassed by a single individual to dateThis week, an anonymous young Russian hacker calling himself “the Collector” just handed over roughly 232 million unique email account credentials and passwords on a social media forum, with a total cache of 1.17 billion records. The hacker claims he only wanted 50 rubles – approximately 75 cents – for all of the information, but ended up simply exchanging them for “likes” on his social media page and some favorable comments about him in hacker forums, according to cyber security experts.The obtained credential information breaks down as follows – over 57...
  • Google killed its April Fools' Day joke after it allegedly lost people their jobs

    Google has abruptly killed off one of its April Fools' Day "jokes" after it caused outrage online, with multiple people claiming that it lost them their jobs. The premise of the joke was simple. In Gmail, next to the standard "Reply" button, Google added a "Mic drop" button. Using it would reply to the email, archive it — and also add a GIF of a "Despicable Me" minion dropping a mic. "Email's great, but sometimes you just wanna hit the eject button," Google wrote in a tongue-and-cheek blog post explaining its purpose. "Like those heated threads at work, when everyone's...

State Sen.

    t's something that has happened to all of us: you finish an email, hit send, and suddenly realize that you've made a typo or spelled the recipient's name wrong. Or you were much too angry when you wrote it. For Gmail users there has been a quiet and until-now-unadvertised fix for this, known as the "Undo Send" feature. The feature does exactly what its name implies: it lets you un-send an email for a short while after sending. Of course, it isn't reaching out and snatching the email back -- it just holds the email for a brief period sufficient...

Large numbers of Gmail web addresses were cut off in China on Friday, said GreatFire.org, a China-based freedom of speech advocacy group. Users said the service was still down on Monday. "I think the government is just trying to further eliminate Google's presence in China and even weaken its market overseas," said a member of GreatFire.org,...

    This week, a list of nearly five million Gmail addresses paired with passwords appeared online, posted in a Russian Bitcoin security forum. Some people who checked the list and found their Gmail addresses there reported that it contained an old password for them, and often a password that they had reused on multiple sites. There’s speculation that the addresses may hay been stolen from other sites where people used their Gmail address as a log-in
