New Tool Scandoo Scans for Scumware in Search Results

Comments

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.
