For more than five years, StopBadware has been working with the Safe Browsing team at Google to help webmasters clean up hacked sites and make the Web safer. Through their detection systems, browser and search warnings, and notifications, Google’s Safe Browsing initiative helps protect millions of Internet users from potentially harmful websites every day. As a result, Google has quite a bit of data on harmful websites and their behavior. Data like Google's is essential to understanding the malware problem—and understanding the problem is, in turn, a prerequisite to solving it.
