Submission + - Google Alerts Users About New State-Sponsored Attacks (net-security.org)

An anonymous reader writes: Remember when in June Google announced its intention to start warning Gmail users that their account might be targeted by state-sponsored attackers?

Mike Wiacek, a manager on Google’s information security team, said to the NYT that since then, Google has improved its knowledge on attack methods and the groups behind them, and has started pushing out new alerts on Tuesday — as evidenced by a slew of U.S. journalists, researchers and foreign policy experts who said they already received the warning.
