Gmail Reportedly Toughens Up Against Malware

Gmail was once praised as being the safest emailing service out there. Especially after Yahoo! Mail turned into somewhat of a security nightmare due to repeated user data leaks and other hacks, many revered Gmail as being the best alternative for keeping confidential email data safe. However, this was recently dispelled as the infamous WannaCry malware infected an impressive number of users.

WannaCry is a pretty clever and damaging ransomware that was being spread through Gmail for a good period of time before Google caught wind of it and shut the whole thing down. Still, this has raised many questions and concerns among users, who feel that their privacy has been violated to a very serious extent, and thus demanding improved security features.

Improved Security on Gmail

As always, Google paid attention to what its users expect from it, and it reportedly added a new layer of security in order to stop malware from ever reaching the infectious peak that WannaCry got to. Gmail is now receiving a new update that will toughen it up and make it more resistant in the face of malicious third party hacking threats such as viruses and malware.

The update consists mainly of machine learning that will block spam and phishing scams more effectively from now on. On top of that, the Google Safe Browsing tool will also be used by Gmail from now on, which will add an extra layer of safety to your emailing. This will mainly be implemented for business accounts, which are the most targeted by such malicious scams.

We will also get a feature that warns us against replying to an unknown sender before we attempt to do so, which is an extra security step ensuring that less accounts get hacked in the foreseeable future.
