Alphabet Inc - Big data breaches found at major email services -expert - Reuters News
Wednesday, 4 May 2016 08:32pm EDT 

Alphabet Inc:Hundreds of millions of hacked usernames and passwords for email accounts and other websites are being traded in Russia's criminal underworld, a security expert told Reuters.The discovery of 272.3 million stolen accounts included a majority of users of Mail.ru, Russia's popular email service, and smaller fractions of Google, Yahoo and Microsoft email users, said Alex Holden, founder and chief information security officer of Hold Security.It is one of the biggest stashes of stolen credentials to be uncovered since cyber attacks hit major U.S. banks and retailers two years ago.The latest discovery came after Hold Security researchers found a young Russian hacker bragging in an online forum that he had collected and was ready to give away a far larger number of stolen credentials that ended up totalling 1.17 billion records.After eliminating duplicates, Holden said, the cache contained nearly 57 million Mail.ru accounts - a big chunk of the 64 million monthly active email users Mail.ru said it had at the end of last year.It also included tens of millions of credentials for the three big email providers, Gmail, Microsoft and Yahoo, plus hundreds of thousands of accounts at German and Chinese email providers."This information is potent. It is floating around in the underground and this person has shown he's willing to give the data away to people who are nice to him," said Holden, the former chief security officer at U.S. brokerage R.W. Baird.  Full Article

Alphabet Inc - Google faces first EU fine in 2016 with no deal on cards -sources - Reuters News
Friday, 29 Apr 2016 12:40pm EDT 

Alphabet Inc:Google is likely to face its first European Union antitrust sanction this year, with little prospect of it settling a test case with the bloc's regulator over its shopping service, people familiar with the matter said - RTRS.There are few incentives left for either party to reach a deal in a six-year dispute that could set a precedent for Google searches for hotels, flights and other services and tests regulators' ability to ensure diversity on the Web.Alphabet Inc's Google, which was hit by a second EU antitrust charge this month for using its dominant Android mobile operating system to squeeze out rivals, shows little sign of backing down after years of wrangling with European authorities.Several people familiar with the matter told Reuters that after three failed compromise attempts since 2010, Google has no plan to try to settle allegations that its Web search results favour its own shopping service, unless the EU watchdog changes its stance.Such a change of heart appears unlikely, with European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, a Dane whose team is leading the Google investigation, showing little interest in reaching a settlement where there is no finding of wrongdoing or a fine against the company, other people said.  Full Article

Alphabet Inc - Photo agency Getty asks EU to investigate Google over images - Reuters News
Wednesday, 27 Apr 2016 08:42pm EDT 

Alphabet Inc:Photo agency Getty Images has become the latest company to ask European competition regulators to investigate Google, accusing the Internet search giant of diverting users to its own images service to the detriment of competitors - RTRS.The European Commission has already conducted a number of investigations into Alphabet Inc's Google, and has charged it with promoting its own shopping service at the expense of rivals and also of using its dominant Android mobile operating system to squeeze out competitors.Google has always denied any wrongdoing and said competition is just a click away. On Wednesday, it declined to comment when asked by Reuters about the complaint from Getty Images.Commission spokesman Ricardo Cardoso said the EU competition enforcer would assess the complaint."When someone has a dominant position, they have a duty not to abuse that dominant position and we feel that Google isn't observing that duty when it comes to images," Getty Images Vice President Jonathan Lockwood told Reuters on Wednesday."We are looking for behavioural remedies. In practical terms, that means wherever a thumbnail image appears on Google Images, and if you do click on it, you go straight to the source website rather than to another page on Google Images," he said.The complaint from Carlyle Group-controlled Getty Images is similar to one made by CEPIC, a European association of picture industries and photo libraries.  Full Article
