What's Wrong With Google?

Google has come up with a temporary fix that prevents attackers from exploiting a newly discovered vulnerability in its Public Service Search. The potential exploit lets an attacker place a fake Google signin page on Google's actual servers.

Cory Altheide, security manager for Google, said in Google's Webmaster Central blog on Friday that Google has temporarily disabled logins on the service and is working on a permanent fix. So Public Search Service, which is aimed at universities and nonprofits, for now is closed to new signups.

But the glitch is just the latest in a series of security problems that have plagued the search engine firm of late. Dark Reading - Desktop Security - What's Wrong With Google? - Security News Analysis
