Google to fight badware

Posted on Tuesday, August 08 2006 @ 00:36:52 CEST by

Google joins the battle against sites that host spyware of adware by warning users via a popup, when they are about the follow a search result to a site that will download such malware.
The search giant is working as part of a 'badware' initiative, along with Sun and Lenovo, to flag websites that have previously been reported to StopBadware.org for distributing such software.

Initially, a general warning will be displayed, but as more detail is collated about a site the warning will become more detailed (see picture), describing the operation of the site and the nature of the threat it represents, along with recommendations for action.
More info over here.
