Google warns of new cyber attacks launched by governments
Again the message “Warning: We believe that government-supported attackers may be trying to compromise your account or computer” is appearing for many Gmail users in your inbox, with new attacks detected by the company.
The company had already warned about the same in June , indicating that since they started alerting users then have detected thousands of cases of cyber attacks more.
Many people have commented on Twitter’s warning, especially journalists, members of NGOs and international relations experts. Google claimed to have seen an increase in activity launched by Governments in the Middle East, but did not specify countries.
Google said that those who see the message may be protected by changing their passwords and Mail account, allowing two-step authentication and updating their equipment to avoid possible hacking vulnerabilities.
