Google launches Safe Browsing API

Google has launched a new tool for downloading its list of suspected phishing and malware URLs — the Safe Browsing API.

The Google blog hails it as “a simple mechanism for downloading Google’s lists of suspected phishing and malware URLs, so now any developer can access the blacklists used in products such as Firefox and Google Desktop.”

The search giant says the API is still experimental, but hopes it will be useful to ISPs, Web-hosting companies, and anyone building a site or an application that publishes or transmits user-generated links.
