*ANNC* write in campaign for anti virus / anti spyware programmes

Discussion in 'Spyware' started by *ProteanThread*, Nov 11, 2004.

  1. several websites, such as yahoo, zdnet, etc. deal with this but i
    thought maybe if it came from the horses mouth....

    what if we got those who write anti virus software (including anti
    spyware) to add syndicated news feeds (rss format) to there websites to
    warn of potential virus / worm attacks or known spyware websites /

    just go to the main website for the any of the anti virus programs,
    click on feedback, and say something like:

    "can you please add some sort of rss feed to your website (to be read in
    standard feed readers such as firefox live bookmarks, etc.) that can be
    used to alert internet users of attacking viruses, worms, spyware, and,
    if possible, spamhauses? this should be a free service available to all
    internet users and would be greatly appreciated. this may be one way to
    help stop attacks before they spread evern further."

    viruses and worms spread faster than the time it takes to filter
    throught the internet news media. maybe by convincing these websites to
    offer some sort of alert feed may help spread the alerts faster before
    the viruses and worms can do more damage.

    Just a thought - I'll go back to lurking....
