Google rolling out updated security warning system for Gmail users to avoid cyber attacks.

Google rolling out updated security warning system for Gmail users to avoid cyber attacks.

 Google is rolling out an updated security warning system this week for Gmail users that the company says is designed to make sure they don't fall victim to cyber attacks.

The first security warning will be triggered when a user clicks on a link in Gmail that Google suspects to be dangerous. They'll be shown a full-page warning and offered several ways to get more information about the threat, along with ways to protect their computer from malicious "badware" that could undermine their online security. Alternatively, a user can proceed to the flagged website at their own risk.
 A second enhancement gives suspected targets of state-sponsored hacking attempts a full-page warning along with information on how to protect their accounts. The new full-page alert is in addition to Google's existing warning, which shows up as a red strip with a link at the top of a suspected victim's Gmail page.

Suspected state-sponsored hacking attempts are rare and impact 0.1 percent of Gmail users, according to Google's online security blog.

The search engine giant also shared an update on a new icon it launched last month -- a broken red lock -- which tells users when they're communicating with an account that does not support encryption. Google said the amount of inbound mail sent over an encrypted connection has increased 25 percent since the icon was implemented.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
