Google's massive fine, cyberattack hits EuropeToday's major headlines include Google's massive fine from the EU, a new ransomware attack is hitting Europe and the infamous Galaxy Note 7 might be back on July 7.
This is cnet and here are the stories that matter right now. Google is facing a $2.7 billion fine because of practices that skewed search results for online shoppers. This violates an EU anti trust rule that prevents other companies and the chance to compete on a level playing field. This marks the largest fine ever handed out by the EU, clocking in at nearly twice what Google was initially expecting. Yet another massive ransomware attack is underway in Europe, infecting Windows machines at an alarming rate. The malware is demanding $300 worth of BitCoin before victims can regain access to their files. Security experts fear many machines remain vulnerable due to the lack of necessary updates. And finally, it seems like the rumored re-launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is happening on July 7. The South Korean wire services is saying the phantom addition of the phone, with a different battery we presume, will sell for around $600.
