Web chat: Applications' role in protecting users from badware

Badware often installs itself by taking advantage of bugs or exploits in software on the user's computer. While some of these exploits are in the operating system or default web browser, badware increasingly is targeting other applications and browser plug-ins.

What role can and should these applications—and their developers—play in protecting users from badware? Join Brad Arkin, Adobe's director of privacy and security, and Johnathan Nightingale, Mozilla's head of Firefox development, for a free moderated web chat next Thursday.

Title: Applications' role in protecting users from badware
