It's been nearly six years to the day since StopBadware and its partners launched BadwareBusters.org, our community platform for those who wanted to learn about and prevent badware. Over the years, the forum has helped thousands of website owners clean up hacked websites. Dozens of security experts have volunteered their time and talent to examine compromised sites, offer advice, and guide users to the best security resources for their needs.
Readers of our newsletter probably noticed that we snuck two new partner logos onto the sidebar of yesterday's update. StopBadware recently welcomed two new partners: Area 1 Security, a SF Bay area startup, and DomainTools, a Seattle-based DNS research and monitoring company we've been working with informally for the past few months.
