How to clear a Google+ account for the White House shooting
When the White Houses Twitter account was hacked on Tuesday, Google was slow to respond.
The company has been a target for cyberattacks before, with a massive breach last year that exposed a large amount of personal data for more than 400 million users.
But it hasn’t been this public.
The White House’s account was a clear target for a coordinated attack, but not because of the breach, Google said.
Instead, the company says it was hacked after it published a story about the shooting that wasn’t independently verified by the news organization.
That was a mistake, the White’s account said.
The incident raises new questions about Google’s security and transparency.
While it hasn, so far, taken any significant steps to address the breach or its impact, it has announced plans to “improve our policies to protect our users and the data we collect,” a spokesperson said.
Google is already under fire for failing to adequately protect its data, and the hack showed how poorly it is at keeping the site secure.
But Google also is facing pressure to provide more transparency about the nature of the hacks and the extent to which it has taken steps to protect users.
The hackers may have gotten a foothold by exploiting a vulnerability in the social media platform’s web browser, said Daniel Drezner, an information security researcher at Google.
Google has patched the issue but hasn’t fixed the vulnerability that allowed them to access the account, he said.
That’s partly because the vulnerability exists in a separate browser that isn’t tied to Google’s social network.
But a recent investigation by security firm Symantec found that Google’s browser had been a prime target for attacks.
Symantec’s report showed that at least two different groups had been working to exploit that vulnerability, and at least one of those groups had obtained the same version of Google’s Chrome browser that Google uses for its social network, which is installed on about two-thirds of all computers on the planet.
Symants report said that at a minimum, Google must have known about the issue because it was a part of a “significant” attack against the social network in late June.
But Symantes report also noted that Google had failed to immediately disclose the vulnerability to its users, leaving them open to attacks even though it had an easy way to fix it.
Google has said it patched the vulnerability but hasn’s been slow to do so, which could be because it didn’t have the ability to patch the problem in time.
That’s not the only reason for Google’s slow response, however.
Google said in an email that it had patched the bug “several weeks ago,” but it had yet to release the fix for other versions of Chrome that aren’t tied directly to Google social.
The company has also been slow in releasing updates to Chrome, a problem that has plagued Chrome since it was first released in 2014.
Google’s software updates are slow to roll out to users because they often don’t include new features.
Symantech also found that many of the bugs in Chrome have been patched in less than a week.
The firm said it is “pushing hard” for Google to release updates to fix those bugs as soon as possible.
Google isn’t the only social network affected by the hack.
Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn all had their accounts compromised.
The hacker also took over a large number of accounts for a large range of websites.
The attack is a major blow to Google, which was founded in 1996 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin and now has more than 500 million users on nearly 1,400 platforms.
Google now controls more than 70 percent of the social networking market.
