Detecting Tag Spam in Social Tagging Systems with Collaborative Knowledge

Kaipeng Liu, Binxing Fang, Yu Zhang
2009 2009 Sixth International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery  
We harness the wisdom of crowds to discover the knowledge on what should be high quality annotations for resources. This knowledge is then used to tell spam posts from the legitimate ones.  ...  Thus, mechanisms for spam detection need to be developed to combat the flexible strategies of spammers for the success of social tagging systems.  ...  In this paper, we propose a simple but remarkable effective approach to detect tag spam in social tagging systems by harnessing the wisdom of crowds.  ...

Re-evaluating the Wisdom of Crowds in Assessing Web Security [chapter]

Pern Hui Chia, Svein Johan Knapskog
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We examine the outcomes of the Web of Trust (WOT), a user-based system for assessing web security and find that it is more comprehensive than three automated services in identifying 'bad' domains.  ...  Such risks are not evaluated by the automated services, highlighting the potential benefits of user inputs. We also find a lack of sharing among the vendors of the automated services.  ...  Westermann and the anonymous reviewers for their comments, and the WOT developers for dataset-II, III and details about the WOT system.  ...
