We've just launched a new public service, Devfense Cyber Alert. The free service will help users know which websites have been flagged as vulnerable to hackers and may harm Internet surfers' computers or be used to violate their privacy. This information is published on Twitter at www.twitter.com/devfense_alert (Twitter username @devfense_alert).
As you are probably already aware, we are using multiple channels to publicize which sites have been flagged for security issues. We also publish short lists of these vulnerable websites in our bi-weekly Cyber Security Informer newsletter. This public service aims to help users take evasive action and create awareness about the widespread problem.
Based on our experience of helping organizations with their web security, we know that visiting websites can be a dicey proposition. As part of the public service, you are invited to contact us if you discover websites infected with malware or showing vulnerabilities. We will facilitate communication between the Internet user and the website owner to help provide some explanation about the security issues involved.
We hope you'll find this public service useful in helping you stay safe online. To contact us, email email@example.com or for more information, visit www.boonbox.net/devfense-cyber-alert.htm
