Latest News A new page, quietly added to Google's corporate Web site last month, gives information on the security and safety of the company's Web properties. It also includes a list of people and organizations that Google wishes to thank for reporting security vulnerabilities to it. That's a first among major Web companies, security researchers say. "We want to thank those people for doing the right thing. I wanted to make sure we gave them lots of public 'geek cred,'" Douglas Merrill, vice president of engineering at Google, said in an interview. "The security researchers I know are partially in it for the geek credibility of it--the 'Hey! Look what I did. I am cool.'"

Over time, n3td3v took on multiple online personalities, or gained members of the n3td3v group, and attempted to create an online security hub. The group's favorite targets included Yahoo!, Google, other researchers and security news reporters, including this one. Even after n3td3v gave up the virtual ghost in September 2006, no one knew the name of the person who infuriated, and amused, so many researchers.

The effect of many security measures put in place by governments after Sept. 11 has been to strengthen control over their citizens and erode democratic freedoms, said Roberto Preatoni, a security consultant who works in Italy.
