StopBadware.org Launched By Consortium

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 30, 2006

The new StopBadware.org website, sponsored by the Berkman Center, the Oxford Internet Institute, with assistance from Consumer Reports WebWatch, …”will seek to provide reliable, objective information about downloadable applications in order to help consumers to make better choices about what they download on to their computers. We aim to become a central clearinghouse for research on badware and the bad actors who spread it, and to become a focal point for developing collaborative, community-minded approaches to stopping badware.”
