Publications | StopBadware



StopBadware periodically publishes documents, comments, and guidelines based on our own research or collaborative research with other stakeholders in the security ecosystem. Our current publications fall into four main categories:

Badware guidelines specify behaviors and practices that can help classify applications and/or websites as “badware.” 

Best practices set industry standards and expectations for reporting and responding to badware. 

Public comments provide insight about security-related issues, in response to government requests for input. 

White papers & reports explore the badware website problem in depth and analyze the response from industry, government, site owners, and other stakeholders.
