According ro Rusty Brick, the brass at Google want you to keep the F-bombs and other sh*t out of thier scematic data!!

Make sure your reviews don’t contain profane or vulgar language. If they do, Google can remove your review rich snippets. Google has changed the guidelines for their reviews schema to prohibit the use of schema for reviews that contain profanity and vulgar language.

The new guidelines section added a line that reads, “[P]rofanity and vulgar language are prohibited. Do not include reviews that contain vulgar or profane language.”

Meanwhile Yahoo is dealing with “state sponsored terrorism”, but what too them 3 years to come clean?

The scale of a second Yahoo breach disclosed on Wednesday was staggering, exposing information associated with a billion accounts. But, perhaps even more staggering was that the theft happened three years ago — and had not been reported until now. That probably left a lot of consumers wondering: Why does it take so long to find out that I’ve been hacked?

In Yahoo’s case, the reason for the delay may be a fairly simple one. The company may not have known about the breach. Yahoo has not revealed how it learned about the 2013 attack, but reading between the lines of its announcement, it seems as though its security team was alerted by outside investigators rather than an internal team.

Maybe they need the assistance of Black Hat SEO guy, because the best denfence is a good defense.

Or do I have that backwards?

This moron looks like he could straighten shit out.

You can find him on twitter….

 

LOL – I hope you all have a better weekend than Yahoo!!!

Google Issues Warning About Itself / Twitter Stock Takes A Dump

Update Google Chrome to minimise security risks

For a company whose motto has shifted from a “don’t be evil” to “There’s nothing to see here.” Google announced that there were some security flaws and the latest version of Chrome.

4 October 2016 – Google has released an update for its widely used Chrome browser that includes three fixes for security flaws. You are advised to update to Chrome version 53.0.2785.143 for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Security updates address vulnerabilities in computer systems that remote attackers can otherwise use to gain access to devices, or information such as online banking details. A vulnerability is a weakness that can leave a computer and its systems open to attack. Attacks can be carried out a number of ways, including through malicious software (malware) such as viruses and spyware that can monitor a users’ activity on a computer and stop systems operating properly.

Stay Smart Online recommends that, wherever possible, you enable functions that allow security updates to be automatically applied when they become available. Information on automating updates is available here. Automatic updates minimise the risk of you delaying or forgetting to apply an update, and help restrict the ability of attackers to gain control of your computer and sensitive personal and financial data.

Twitter Stock takes a dump on the news Google would not be placing a bid to buy the company. Honestly, I already thought that Google already owned Twitter because they quietly allowed Google access to “the firehose” — meaning that all Twitter data was now for sale to Google and you had a better bet they were buying.

Unfortunate news, but I believe it is only a bluff. I doubled down on my Twitter stock just after hearing about the firehose deal. Oh well, it should only make Twitter stock spike that much more when Google finally acquires them!
