Google unveils `Project Zero` hacker squad to defend people against cyber-attacks

The team of hackers will look for threats, mainly on `zero-day vulnerabilities` such as the recent `heartbleed` bug, in the most popular software such as Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.
Google security researcher, Chris Evans said that they are hiring the best practically-minded security researchers and contributing 100 percent of their time toward improving security across the internet.
