Google cars grabbed emails, passwords 谷歌:街景车截获邮件、密码
Google admitted for the first time its "Street View" cars around the world accidentally collected more personal data than previously disclosed -- including complete emails and passwords, Reuters reports. Google's Street View cars, which are well known for crisscrossing the globe and taking panoramic pictures of city streets, accidentally collected data from unsecured wireless networks used by residents in more than 30 countries, Google disclosed in May. "It's clear from those inspections that while most of the data is fragmentary, in some instances entire emails and URLs were captured, as well as passwords," Google Vice President of Engineering and Research Alan Eustace said in a post on Google's blog Friday. Google also said in the blog post that it hoped to delete the data as soon as possible. 路透社消息,美国谷歌公司承认,用于在全球收集街道图像的街景车意外收集了先前未公布的私人信息,其中包括私人电子邮件和密码等。谷歌在全球超过30个国家和地区利用街景车收集图像。今年5月,谷歌承认其街景车通过无线装置意外地收集过一些私人信息。谷歌负责工程和研发的副总裁艾伦·尤斯塔斯22日在谷歌博客上发帖说:“从核查结果明显看出,大部分数据是碎片;但在某些情况下,整个电子邮件、网址和密码都被截获。”谷歌表示希望尽快删除收集的信息。

Shark kills body boarder 美冲浪男被鲨鱼咬死
A surfer watched in shock as a huge shark suddenly surfaced just feet away and snatched a friend off a boogie board and dragged him to his death Friday at Surf Beach at Vandenberg Air Force Base near Santa Barbara, U.S., AFP reports citing the Los Angeles Times. Lucas Ransom, 19, died of massive injuries shortly after the shark attack. "It was very stealth," Ransom's friend Matthew Garcia said. "You would have never known there was a shark in the water. It was all really quick.” He said Ransom looked over and said "Help me, dude," before being dragged under. Witnesses told police the shark was between 4 to 6 meters in length. Authorities closed beaches for 72 hours after the attack. 法新社援引《洛杉矶时报》称,周五,在美国靠近圣巴巴拉市范登堡空军基地的冲浪海滩,一名冲浪运动员惊恐地目睹一条巨大的鲨鱼突然从数英尺外的海面冒出,把一位朋友从布吉冲浪板上拽下来,然后将其咬死。19岁的卢卡斯·兰塞姆被鲨鱼咬成重伤,随即身亡。兰塞姆的朋友马修·加西亚说:“它(鲨鱼)很鬼祟。你根本没法知道水里有鲨鱼。一切发生得太快了。”他还说,兰塞姆抬头望了一下,喊道:“哥们,救我!”, 然后就被拽下去了。目击者告诉警方说,鲨鱼有4至6米长。袭击事件发生以后,政府封锁海滩达72小时。
