New Firefox 31/32 Adds Googles Malware-Block-Mechanism


Recommended Posts



Google has offered an application reputation feature to detect malicious downloads as part of Google Safe Browsing since 2012 [1]. Although this part of the Safe Browsing API is not documented, they have offered it to us for use in Firefox. Malicious download detection is separate from detection of phishing and malware pages (present in Firefox since 2.0), though both features use some of the same mechanisms.
