Yet, with the high number of website application insecurities (http://www.scmagazineus.com/web-apps-account-for-80-percent-of-internet-vulnerabilities/article/129027/) and the increase in website hacking (http://www.darkreading.com/document.asp?doc_id=148143&WT.svl=news1_2, http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/nov/20/america-china-hacking-security-obama, and http://www.breach.com/resources/whitepapers/downloads/WP_TheWebHackingIncidents-2009.pdf), how could an average website owner know if their website is helping or hurting their customers and the Internet as a whole? Now a new non-profit entity (http://www.rescuetheweb.org/) has formed to find websites that have already been hacked, are leaking information, or are using highly vulnerable software. The entity then notifies the website owner and asks them to upgrade their website to more secure software or remove the leaked information.
