The objective behind this bachelor’s thesis is to survey what kinds of threats exist, which our society is more prone to, and how to help people to use internet in a secure way. A system is then to be developed which will help alleviate some of these threats.

The system developed in this thesis is an add-on module for Mozilla Firefox (version 29 or later) which provides information to the user about the website they are visiting, along with user feedback and any potential warnings.
The prototype analyzes and rates every website a user visits. Each analysis is reevaluated on a regular basis in order to always provide accurate information. The analysis of each website is made by a server which outputs the results to the plugin module. The system also accounts for any user generated feedback for that website as well as algorithmic ratings from trusted 3rd party sources, such as Google. (Less)
