Yahoo has launched a new service called SearchScan that will indicate potentially harmful or risky sites right within the search results. The detection comes from McAfee’s SiteAdvisor technology which scans sites for unruley issues such as spyware or malware downloads in order to help protect user’s computers. If a site is flagged as containing such issues a small red line of text below the title link for the site on the search results page will warn users of the potential problems detected in an effort to deter the user from proceeding to click through.
Much more information is available on Search Engine Land.
