Visualizing eight years of independent reviews

Posted on August 14, 2015 - 12:24 by ccondon

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.
