Safer Internet Surfing Free With LinkScanner Lite

xploit Prevention Labs’ LinkScanner Lite is a safe searching, safe browsing solution, which provides early warning and detection for a variety of online threats.  Like McAfee’s Site Advisor, LinkScanner provides real time analysis of network traffic and Internet content to prevent exploits and malicious content automatically.  It identifies suspicious Web sites through real time scanning of search results and hyperlinks.

You can scan a given URL on demand, and you can use LinkScanner side-by-side with SiteAdvisor for those who feel they need the extra protection.  “Safe Surfing” is my mantra so personally, I use both.

Additionally, LinkScanner Lite will automatically inspect search results on major search engines and provide real-time advice to prevent you from accidentally visiting a dangerous site.

Here are some key features of “LinkScanner Lite”:

  • Search Shield – Inspect search results on major search engines to inform you, before you visit, which web sites are safe or dangerous and why.  An icon placed next to the listing allows you to steer clear of malicious web pages and suspicious sites.
  • Quick Scan – Allows you to pre-scan any hyperlink for site insecurities, on-demand, by simply right-clicking on the link.  QuickScan is great for browsing the web or for verifying links forwarded by friends, in blogs, or other forums. The right-click scanning option is available in Internet Explorer 6.0 and higher only.
  • Compatible with major anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall products
