New Delhi, Sep 7, 2017: In a bid to empower Indias small and medium business (SMB) communities, Google on Thursday launched a feature for “Google My Business” customers that allows owners to manage the business listings from a simple, easy-to-access dashboard within Google Search.

For this, owners are required to find their businesses on Google Search, complete and enhance listing, share photos and posts and see how many views they are receiving.

According to Google India, more than 80 per cent of people are searching the Internet to find local information.

“When people get to know your business, they are more likely to become customers and businesses with complete listings on Google are twice as likely to gain customer trust, 38 per cent more likely to attract in-store visits and 29 per cent more likely to see a purchase,” Google India said in a statement.

An owner can find business on Google Search and click the edit button on a new menu above the search results.

The fields which can be edited will be highlighted where an owner can update information and upload photos directly. (IANS)

  • Google has detected a flaw in Microsoft Edge
  • The advantage can be cashed in by the hackers
  • Microsoft will correct the flaw soon

Google has made public the details of a medium-level security flaw in Microsoft Edge browser whose patch is still not produced.

The vulnerability was first discovered in November 2017, by the search giant’s Project Zero.

According to Engadget, taking advantage of the flaw, hackers could bypass Microsoft Edge’s existing security measures to inject malicious code into a victim’s computer.

Google, through its Project Zero, notified Microsoft about a bug in November, giving the company the usual 90-day disclosure deadline.

With the three-month deadline over, the team of security analysts employed by Google tasked with finding zero-day vulnerabilities — Project Zero –went public with the details of the security flaw.

The search giant granted a 14-day extension to Microsoft after it said that the problem was complex and it needed more time to fix it.

But, Microsoft even missed the second deadline to produce the patch of the vulnerability. However, given Edge’s small market share, the security issue was unlikely to affect too many people though it is still embarrassing for the company.
