Mozilla Partners with StopBadware.org to Protect Consumers

Nicole Loux

This morning we announced we’re partnering with StopBadware.org, the Harvard University based consumer protection initiative developed to combat badware in novel ways. Mozilla and StopBadware collaborated during the development of Firefox 3’s malware warning system.  Now these efforts will be extended to include research into how badware spreads online, an active community of users helping each other to keep their Web sites and computers protected, public alerts about new badware applications, and a clearinghouse of dangerous Web sites reported by StopBadware.org’s partners.

For more information please see the press release and Maxim Weinstein’s StopBadware blog.
