McAfee today announced that it had acquired SiteAdvisor to improve its online security offerings. Just like the US Homeland Security National Threat level color codes, SiteAdvisor browser plug-in places a "safe," "caution" or "warning" label whenever a user visits a Web site.
When a user searches through Google, Yahoo or MSN, SiteAdvisor displays the safety rating next to the search result. Additionally, as users browse the internet, a button on the toolbar would change color based on that site's security rating.
SiteAdvisor also hosts a Site Report page that documents the results of every test on every Web site. Here's a sample SiteAdvisor report on Google, Microsoft and Yahoo.
