Facebook announce Antivirus Marketplace
Facebook officials are launching a site on their social network aimed at making their 900 million-plus users and their systems more secure.
Facebook, in partnership with Microsoft, McAfee, Symantec, Trend Micro and Sophos, on April 25 announced the Antivirus Marketplace, where users can download free six-month licenses or full versions of the companies’ anti-malware software for six months to a year, depending on which products they choose.
At the same time, the software companies will share their URL blacklists, which detail suspicious Websites, with Facebook, which already has its own list. The idea is that with its own URL blacklist being augmented by those from its software vendor partners, Facebook will better be able to protect its users from malicious links that are sent around the social network.
