We asked Tyler Moore, StopBadware's research advisor and the boffin who's taking over our core operations, to expand on his plans for the organization in Tulsa and to throw in some 90s references. He obliged.
StopBadware has been performing independent reviews of websites blacklisted by our data providers for more than eight years. As we've explained in the past, a manual review done by our staff is not always necessary: if a webmaster requests a StopBadware review of a site on Google's Safe Browsing blacklist, the first step in our review process is an automated request for Google to rescan the site in search of malicious code. If Google's automated systems don't find anything suspicious, that site will come off Google's blacklist without our ever having to touch it.
