Google Inc. has enhanced the way it notifies webmasters that their
sites contain malware, improving on a service the Mountain View,
California, company launched in November of last year in a partnership
with The Stop Badware Coalition.

Google has begun providing more detailed alerts and to send these notifications via e-mail to webmasters, according to a posting Monday on an official Google blog.

Previously, Google only informed webmasters that their sites had
been identified as having malware and made generic suggestions for
fixing the problem. Now, the company also points webmasters to specific
offending pages from their sites that Google has determined contain
malicious components.
