Google: ‘We are not a threat’

Posted in Publications by whuup on June 12, 2009

aobadfiohvdafGoogle is feeling really uncomfortable, because of the increasing attention of the American authorities. The company tries to convince journalists, politicians and publishers of its innocence. American supervisors started various studies at Google.

Painful things are point of discussion, for example the role of manager Eric Schmidt in the administration of Apple, supposed appointments about personnel management and a proposed agreement with book publishers concerning Google Books. The problems are all about the monopolistic side of the search engine. But.. Google says it does not form a threat to the world. Instead of a dominant search engine is Google an usual part of a large internet ecosystem, it claims.

Although the name ‘Google’ became a verb to descrive searching on the internet, Google claims it has competition of businesses as Amazon and Ebay. At the internet advertisement market, the business has the grand piece of that cake. 30% is for Google, and that’s far to much.

Typo’d Google domains in Top 10 malware exploit sites

Posted in Web by whuup on June 5, 2009

typogoogle1Misspelled versions of two popular Google services are among the Top 10 sites hosting exploits for use in drive-by malware download attacks. Of these domains more than 1,400 were hosted in the China’s .cn top level domain.  Several contained plays on the name of Google such as goooogleadsence.biz and googleanalystics.net. Some sources say ten of thousands of hijacked sites that are referring to Google (or third party websites) are  launching attacks via the browser.

So, think twice before visiting a website which you typed (or clicked!) that is from Google. Maybe you shouldn’t visit Google anymore.

Google + typo = virus

Posted in Web by whuup on February 19, 2009

typogoogle1Internet REIT, a giant investor in domain names backed by leading private-equity investors, owns more than 30 addresses that are misspellings of Google or its product names, including googledearth.com, googleeardh.com and googleearthc.com. Those adresses can be used to spread malware, spyware and virusses. Since the virusmakers became really online-agressive and smart people, you can visit a malware website but think that you typed the address correctly. It’s another bad thing Google’s popularity is taken care of.
