The reports of hackers poisoning search results by optimizing landing pages that included links to viruses, spyware and other malware alarmed many people. Now a free new service called Scandoo serves as a front-end to Ask, Google, MSN Search and Yahoo, scanning results for potential nasties. It identifies potential threats in real-time without requiring a plug-in or download. "Clean" results are labeled with a green checkmark; those with potential threats are labeled with a red "X" (see it in action with this search for "warez"). More about Scandoo and how it works here.
