Several weeks ago, we put out a request for comments to anyone who might have feedback on our newly developed best practices for reporting badware URLs. As a reminder, we’ll be accepting comments on the new best practices until this Friday, September 16.
As we mentioned previously, one of the catalysts for our developing these best practices for reporting was feedback we received while creating the first installment of our Best Practices for Web Hosting Providers. We’re extremely interested in any comments web hosting providers may have on these new best practices. Please see our previous blog post on this topic for a list of specific questions about which we’d like feedback.
You can see for yourself the results of our first shot at reporting badware URLs according to these best practices. Given the success of these initial attempts, we’re excited to hear comments on the reporting best practices and integrate them so as to make the final document as complete and effective as possible. Comments can be submitted here or sent to contact/at/stopbadware/dot/org.
