Google and Sun moving closer

Google has joined with Sun Microsystems and Lenovo to fund a new anti-spyware coalition that launched on Jan. 25.

" is a "Neighborhood Watch" campaign aimed at fighting badware. We will seek to provide reliable, objective information about downloadable applications in order to help consumers to make better choices about what they download on to their computers. We aim to become a central clearinghouse for research on badware and the bad actors who spread it, and to become a focal point for developing collaborative, community-minded approaches to stopping badware."
