Powered by McAfee SiteAdvisor technology, Yahoo’s new SearchScan feature will also alert users to potentially risky sites with security concerns such as spyware, adware and other malicious software that can infect and damage their PCs. According to Yahoo, SearchScan will also identify sites that have shown bad email practices, flooding users’ in-boxes with spammy emails.

“The new SearchScan feature from Yahoo Search makes searching the Web even safer than ever before,” Vish Makhijani, senior vice president and general manager, Yahoo Search, has said, adding, “No other search engine today offers this level of warning before visiting sites that can damage or infect a user’s PC and cost them valuable time and money.”
