New Funding, New Website, New Research

It's been an exciting week for us. We raised new funding by Google Ventures, launched a new website and Neil and team have published new research on the widgetization of the web.

Malware is one of the fastest growing threats on the Internet today. We are thrilled that the additional funding by Google Ventures will help support our mission and commitment to keep the Internet safe and malware-free for users and online businesses. For more details on the this partnership read the press release here.



Our new website went live on Friday and we have already received a lot of positive feedback. For those of you used to the Dasient 'blue,' you will notice that we have gone for a much bolder color scheme and design. We revamped our website to improve the navigation and provide additional resources for our visitors. Also, we wanted to let our customers and other industry experts do the talking, so you'll find a couple of videos featuring Dasient customer Jim Shugarts from MediaNewsGroup interactive and Gary McGraw, a well-known subject matter expert and best-selling author of 7 software security books. Check out our website and let us know what you think!

In parallel, we have also been working on some new research which Neil presented at Black Hat DC in January. The findings are summarized in a paper called 'The Widgetization of The Web' which talks about how the Web 2.0 transformation has involved many sites using third-party widgets. Click on the link to download the white paper but the gist of it is that the compromise of just a few popular widgets can be used to turn the most trafficked web sites on the Internet into distribution vehicles for malware. The paper also presents some case studies about how real analytics, audience measurement and advertising widgets have been used to infect high-profile websites with malware.

Enjoy the read and keep your sites safe!

  6. An economic model based on knowledge, thus in education, science and innovation requires long-term strategies and no circumstantial investment depending on current financial situation. In my opinion the risk of a "brain drain" in Spain is real and maybe not reversible: http://essayswriters.org/academic-writing/.

  8. To meet the goals of modern society and higher education as a foundation of it, all universities use short written materials as its major part. In case a student gets a complicated one topic with lots of derivatives and key objectives to be indicated, he can always hire Papersmart.net to write compare and contrast essay papers and get considerable assistance the very same day, a week or a period of time needed to meet all requirements of current assignment.

  13. is a big, fat, outrageous scam. A few months ago I happened to place an order for a 20 page paper through their website. With “transparent” writer reviews and “affordable” prices, I thought I was making the best choice available. I was wrong. (A bit of background information: I am a senior in college who wanted a sample paper to help me complete my comps). When I first saw website, it didn’t seem horrible. They promised low prices and their writers seemed American or at least fluent in the English language (stupid me thinking that their writers’ names were real). But what was advertised as $7.50 per page quickly spiraled into $25 and $30 per page. On top of that, I realized that if you didn’t buy from a pricey writer, your paper was going to be complete shit. Like illegible. Like an F. So after I placed my order with a writer named God-knows-what in real life, I sat and waited for my paper. I had written a draft of my paper already and was going to use this to ease the process. What I got was COMPLETE GARBAGE. The paper was formatted incorrectly, it didn’t reach the page limit I PAID FOR, and didn’t even address the topics I requested. I think assumes that students who use their service are complete idiots. Some may be. But I am not. I ordered a paper with them because I care about my grades (who doesn’t when paying 50K a year for school) and wanted to IMPROVE my dissertation. So, what did they do when I called to ask for a partial refund? They told ME that nothing could be done. That the terms and conditions I agreed too were set in stone and that it was my fault for having selected the writer that I did.

    Essentially they told me that they can take my money but not offer a shred of accountability when one of their employees fucks up. WOW. And then here’s the best part: when I called to speak with someone about giving a negative review of their service, they told me they would find out where I go to school and make sure I would always regret speaking poorly about them. Real professional. So, as an aspiring computer programmer, A REALLY PISSED OFF CUSTOMER, and someone who doesn’t give a flying fuck that these scam artists have my contact information, I created this website to inform students around the world that is a scam. I encourage fellow students who have been scammed by this company to give their reviews on as well. The more reviews the merrier.

  17. I'm just having a hard time. I'm so impatient rolex datejust replica. I lost 10 pounds but then two weeks later I was still at 185, even though I worked out on the weekends too, for an hour.

I don't like to do anything in public so it really limits me and I don't know how to push myself any further. I always breitling replica seem to stop losing weight at 10 pounds.
