Announcing StopBadware Stories

StopBadware announced today the launch of StopBadware Stories, a project to collect and share stories about the effects of badware on people’s lives. The project is part of an effort to raise awareness of badware as a problem that affects, and is affected by, individual Internet users.

StopBadware Stories is an extension of our online community. The site now allows users to submit stories combining text, images, and video. Visitors can browse, rate, comment on, and share each others’ stories. Authors are asked to agree to a Creative Commons license that allows their stories to be remixed, reused, or redistributed for non-commercial use.

Have you had an experience with badware that you would like to share? Or would you just like to read others' stories? Check out the site at Want to keep posted as new stories are added? Subscribe to the RSS feed.

More or less two weeks ago my site, a site which fights against HIV infection and discrimination of persons like me, which lives with HIV, was infected with a badware.

It was the first time in allmost ten years...

BTW, is the fisrt time in iots history which its between the first 330,000 in Alexa rank...

When I daw my site black listed I feel so bad. There are ten years of my life in this website and, for a while, I thought that those ten years were lost forever.

The first thing I though was "give up and never return to the domain". I fell like a part of me was fead.
Fortunetelly, I've found this website, and two persons help me, with no fees, to clen up my site and figure out how to avoid to get hacked.

If I were a way to say thank you personally, surely, i would it.
But I cannot to do it and leave, here, my tahnkfull to all this persons which gives support to anyone who cames here like me, lost and confuse.
Thank you so much
With my best regards
Claudio Santos de Souza
