Yahoo! and McAfee Launch Safe Search Feature

Yahoo!, Inc. (  and McAfee, Inc. ( announced a partnership to deliver a safer web search experience through Yahoo! Search. Just launched in beta, the new SearchScan feature by Yahoo! Search, powered by the McAfee SiteAdvisor technology, provides always-on alerts to users for "risky" sites with security concerns such as spyware, adware, and other malicious software that can infect and damage a user’s PC. SearchScan also identifies sites that have shown bad email practices, flooding user in-boxes with spammy emails.

SearchScan is available for Yahoo! Search users in the U.S., Canada, U.K., France, Italy, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and Spain. The McAfee/Yahoo! partnership is a multiyear, global agreement with additional elements, including bringing Yahoo! Search to McAfee users in the next few months.

By integrating McAfee’s technology into Yahoo! Search, sites that may harm the user’s computer just by visiting them will be eliminated from appearing in Yahoo! Search results. SearchScan also alerts users to potentially risky sites with a red warning sign in search results, allowing users to proceed with caution. During this beta period, SearchScan displays McAfee alerts optimal for the Yahoo! Search user and does not include all McAfee SiteAdvisor red ratings.
