This year has seen a lot in terms of failure of security. Many sites were hacked. Websites such as Twitter, Facebook, Gawker Media etc were some of the big names to be hacked. In some sites (such as Facebook ) hackers took out the personal information of the users.
In order to notify such types of security failure from the side of website providers, Google is planning to add a security warning while listing the sites on its search engine so that the users come to know that the site they are about to open is being hacked or already hacked by someone.
Google already provides the label “This site may be compromised” on the sites that have been infiltrated by malware attack, as shown in the picture below.
Google is also planning to go one step further and will notify the owner of the website of the possible hack. It will stop displaying the warning message as soon as the problem is fixed. Google said that it will use automated tools to detect of a possible hack.
The Cisco Security Report published earlier this year stated that as online gaming and social networks is rising so there is a need for such type of actions to prevent the malicious activities away.
