Google Search Analytics API makes available resource sets
Google opened access to resource sets in the Search Console by means of the Search Analytics API. Mike Sullivan from the United States was the first one noticed this innovation.
Google launched a new feature "Resource Kits" in the Search Console in May this year. It allows you to connect up to 200 resources of any type (either the web pages or applications) into a sole group and receive all the data on clicks and impressions in a single report.
From now on the resource kits are also available through the Search Analytics API.
Gooligan virus shut down over a million Google accounts
Check Point Israeli company specialists have found a malware that has cracked over a million Google accounts. The number of affected users is still growing, which equals about 13 thousand people a day.
The virus was named Gooligan. It infects devices running Android 4 (Jelly Bean, KitKat) and 5 (Lollipop) and steals email-addresses and authentication data that is stored on them.
The resulting information can be used by hackers to gain access to user data in Google Play, Gmail, Google Photos, Google Docs, GSuite, Google Drive and other services.
The report says that about 57% of infected devices are found in Asia, whereas in Europe this number equals 9%.
The CheckPoint immediately contacted Google security service having detected the malicious activity. At the moment, the experts are looking for the source of both Gooligan campaigns.
