‘backed by certain states’

2013-02-06

in Geek stuff, Internet matters, Security

In a slightly ominous development, GMail is now warning me that: “We believe that attackers backed by certain states may be attempting to compromise your account or computer” and urge me to: “Protect yourself now“.

This is probably just further fallout from the Stratfor hack. I wish it wasn’t happening while I am so completely occupied with urgent school assignments, climate work, and continuing efforts to do paid photographic work.

That sounds very ominous! How would you go about protecting yourself? Good luck in foiling their plan.
