AVG Technologies, the popular antivirus solutions company has announced its plans to unveil a new LinkScanner malware detector application for Mac. The application will allow users to check web pages in real-time for malware in the outbound links from any website.
The application is already available on the Windows platform and AVG has revealed that the Mac version of LinkScanner will also be free to download. Explaining the software’s algorithm, the company notes that rather than relying on a database of blacklisted sites to offer an advice to users, LinkScanner will resort to real-time scanning of destination websites to issue an alert to users.
The date of release of the application has not been announced as yet.[via PC World]
