Google Project Zero team will protect the internet

Google creates Google Project Zero team to protect the internet: “You should be able to use the web without fear that a criminal or state-sponsored actor is exploiting software bugs to infect your computer, steal secrets or monitor your communications”

Google introduced Project Zero on Tuesday, a team of researchers committed to revealing zero-day weaknesses, defects and other security concerns that could be a threat to internet users.

The Project Zero crew plans to work in “real-time,” which means the researchers will rapidly report all identified bugs to the software’s vendor – and aid in minimization – before registering the vulnerability in an external database for all to view and discuss, based to a Tuesday post by Chris Evans, a Chrome security researcher.

“You should be able to use the web without fear that a criminal or state-sponsored actor is exploiting software bugs to infect your computer, steal secrets or monitor your communications,” Evans wrote. “We think more can be done to tackle this problem”
