Yahoo! Making The Search Safer..

So Yahoo still copying Google as always :)

Yahoo announce a new feature via Yahoo Search Blog that Yahoo search engine will show which site may be harmful for your computer in there SERPS.
They are using McAfee's SiteAdvisor technology to alert users when risky websites appear in Yahoo! Search results. Currently they are scanning three types of risk that includes

  • Browser Exploits -- These are sites that can stealthily harm a user's computer or install malware simply by visiting the site. Beginning today, any such sites or pages included in McAfee's data will be removed from search results automatically.
  • Dangerous Downloads -- SearchScan will display warnings next to search results for sites that offer potentially dangerous software, such as viruses, spyware or adware. Users often may be unaware that these can be passed along with the screensavers, games and other software downloads.
  • Unsolicited Email -- SearchScan will alert users to scanned sites that send unsolicited emails or inappropriately share email addresses with third parties.

According to Yahoo Search Blog SearchScan will continue to evolve and improve in future.
