Google puts repeatedly dangerous websites on notice
Google has added a new classification to its Safe Browsing initiative to better protect users from malicious websites trying to game the system.
Google’s Safe Browsing warns users when they are about to visit a website known to violate the web giant’s policies on malware, unwanted software, phishing or social engineering. The warning appears until Google verifies that the site in question no longer poses a threat to users. But some sites are only cleaning up their act just long enough to shake the warning, and then returning to their harmful behavior.
