Google is building the longest cable in the world… and it won’t be on land.

North and South Americans will soon get faster access to Google services like search, Gmail, and youtube.

An underwater cable is being built by the tech giant, and it will connect more countries together, like United States, Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina.

The cable, called Firmina, will be the longest cable in the world, Google said in a blog post.

“Firmina will improve access to Google services for users in South America,”

GOOGLE WROTE.

Google wants to boost internet connection capacity between these regions, and it hopes the cable will carry traffic quickly, but also securely.

Google wrote that the cable will carry traffic quickly and securely between North and South America, giving users fast, low-latency access to Google products such as Search, Gmail and YouTube, as well as Google Cloud services.

It will run from the East Coast of the United States to Las Toninas, Argentina, with additional landings in Praia Grande, Brazil, and Punta del Este, Uruguay.

WhatsApp launches privacy campaign following backlash

Published

WhatsApp has launched its first privacy-focused advertising campaign, following major backlash

Millions in the UK stopped using WhatsApp, thanks to new privacy changes that were implemented at the start of the year.

The messaging platform is standing firm against pressure from governments that want to compromise the way that it encrypts messages.

WhatsApp’s boss says governments shouldn’t be out there trying to encourage tech companies to offer weak security.

Authorities should “demand more security” rather than less, WhatsApp boss Will Cathcart told the media.

“The first step of keeping people safe is, you have to have strong security, and we think governments shouldn’t be out there trying to encourage tech companies to offer weak security,”

“They should be out there trying to encourage or even mandate that companies offer the strongest security possible.”

WhatsApp uses end-to-end encryption, which means messages can only be read on the device which sends one and the device which receives it. WhatsApp itself – and by default its parent company Facebook – cannot view or intercept them, and neither can law enforcement.

The marketing campaign is set to run internationally, beginning in the UK and Germany today.

Home Secretary Priti Patel has described the use of end-to-end encryption as “not acceptable” in the fight against the sharing of illegal content.

McDonald’s has been McHacked

McDonald’s is the latest leading company to be hit by a data breach, exposing customers’ details.

The world’s largest fast-food chain restaurant confirmed cyber hackers have tapped into customer files.

The recent breach last Friday affects customers in South Korea and Taiwan, including e-mail, delivery addresses, and phone numbers.

The chain confirmed that it recently hired external consultants to investigate unauthorised activity on an internal security system, prompted by a specific incident in which the unauthorised access was cut off a week after it was identified, McDonald’s said.

Payment details have not been breached.

McDonald’s said it wasn’t asked for ransom, nor did it make any payment to the hackers.

Ransomware attacks have disrupted operations at leading companies around the world in recent months including the Colonial Pipeline Co. and meat supplier JBS.
