Three Minutes on Google Security

“Security has been a bit of a black art at Google. Unlike rival Microsoft, which publishes detailed information on its monthly patches and has openly evangelized the steps it takes to secure software, Google has generally been quiet when it comes to talking about security and it has kept the team that keeps Google’s Web sites secure under wraps.Not so anymore. In April, Google researchers presented a paper on Web security at a technical conference in Cambridge, Massachusetts, discussing the results of the company’s ongoing effort to “identify all Web pages on the Internet that could potentially be malicious.” A month later, Google started its first-ever security blog, and since then observers have had their first glimpse into the lives of Google’s 100-person security team.”
