Google is aiming to be the cyber-security superheroes of the internet.
In a new effort called Google Project Zero, a team of security researchers have made it their mission to track down security flaws in the world's software.
According to Wired, when Google researchers discover flaws in another company's software, they'll quietly alert that firm.
If nothing gets done soon, they'll go public with it on their blog.
If the bug is particularly critical, they'll put extra pressure on the company and try to develop an alternative themselves.
The team already spotted holes in Apple's iOS device software and Microsoft's malware protection program.
The Project Zero name comes from the types of bugs they're trying to eliminate.
