StopBadware.org Posts Badware Guide for Casual Internet Users

Last week, StopBadware.org released a report titled "Trends in Badware 2007: What internet users need to know." The document is a plain-English explanation of modern security threats on the web, covering iframe injections, phishing on social networks, and scareware, amongst other topics. In an environment that often offers only arcane cues to malice or wrongdoing, the 12-page document is a straightforward way to improve security awareness in the casual Internet user.
