+ - Is Whitelisting Coming of Age?->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Kaspersky recently announced their Whitelist Security Approach. It is a whole new concept to make the functioning of the antivirus program much faster and better. Whitelist is basically a database that stores information about different programs and files. You can check whether a file is safe or not by just simply entering its checksum or uploading the file itself.

Once the information is stored on the global database, you don’t need to scan the files again and again, the antivirus program would automatically retrieve information from Whitelist database. You can be sure about your files before installing or taking the risk of running them.

If you are a developer, then you may want to submit your apps to Kaspersky Whitelist, so that your users can assure themselves about the security of your application and it would also give you the program usage data.

Does this alleviate the need for signatures?
Does this stop 0-day exploits quicker?"

The Jensense blog reports "Numerous AdSense publishers have been receiving emails from Google the past couple of days stating that their use of their AdSense account is an unsuitable business model and that accounts would be disabled as of June 1st, giving publishers about two weeks notice to prepare for the loss of the AdSense accounts." Google regularly bans and rejects AdSense accounts in violation of the TOS, however this change appears to be affecting a much larger quantity of MFA sites profiting from the imbalance of AdWords costs vs AdSense profits. Currently being discussed over at WebMasterWorld."
