itwbennett writes “Stanford Law School has released a wiki called WhatApp?, where users can rate all manner of web apps, browsers, mobile platforms, mobile apps, and social network apps on their security, privacy, and openness. Currently, the wiki ‘lists some 200+ apps, but most of them have not been reviewed yet. So they need a lot of help,’ writes blogger Dan Tynan. ‘To review an app you select it from the list, then fill out a 9-question form rating its privacy, security, and openness, ranging from 5 (very private, secure, and open) to 1 (a steaming pile of vulnerabilities and violations).’”
