Google addresses security issues via Project Zero team

Wednesday 16 July 2014 14:08 CET | News

Google has started addressing the issue of internet security by creating a new security-dedicated team dubbed Project Zero.

Google mentioned that it will not place any particular bounds on this project, but instead will work to improve the security of any software depended upon by large numbers of people.

Google will use and pay attention to targets, motivations of the attackers and of course the techniques that those hackers may employ. Its efforts will use standard approaches including locating and reporting large numbers of vulnerabilities, and at the same time will conduct new research into mitigations, exploitation, program analysis and generally anything else that the researchers may decide is a worthwhile investment.

Google will be committed to these efforts transparently as well, and every bug found will be filed in an external database, and that Google will only report bugs to the software’s vendor and no third parties.
