Horror stories wanted
Announced today, a new initiative led by Harvard Law School's Berkman Center for Internet & Society and Oxford University's Oxford Internet Institute. Corporate sponsors include Google, Lenovo ( formerly IBM PC Computing Division), and Sun Microsystems, Inc.
The group has adopted the term “Badware” to better define spyware, malware and deceptive adware. Adware companies frequently complain about being lumped together with Spyware. Other companies and organizations have been quick to offer their support to this alliance which sees itself as a “Neighborhood Watch” of badware.
No matter what your level of computing knowledge, everyone is invited to get involved. Tell your badware horror story, submit technical data and/or participate in discussions by going to http://www.stopbadware.com/home/get_involved.
