Google provides web masters tools for making the search mechanisms easier or both Google and the web owner for the benefit of a faster search results for the end-user. This is what web-masters know in years. Bu the news is that Google as per today will give information about serious issues the web page may have like serious errors or infection by malware.
As I can see this is a great initiative especially useful for small, middle companies/organizations due to the lack of huge muscle to detect and fight malware and other malicious SW infection.
BUT, doesn’t this notification give information back to the creator of malware their malware has already been detected? May be an easy and cheap way to test if malware is working “properly”?
Well, I am sure that in most cases this would be for the benefit of the majority of the Internet users and this is what it counts!
Excellent initiative Google!
Hopefully this initiative may lead other giants within the IT industry to share their findings about security and other serious issues for specific web page.
