January 24th, 2012Exclusive Anti-bot Protection:
· McAfee now blocks stealthy botnet software by denying its attempts to connect your PC to web addresses that belong to crooks. This extra defense helps prevent your computer from sending out your personal information to Internet crime networks.
USB and Removable Drive Scan:
· Portable storage devices can be infected in their travels, spreading malicious code from system to system. McAfee scans and blocks this portable payload of viruses, Trojans, and worms before it can wriggle into your PC and your network.
· Many people get McAfee protection because they are already infected. To help you salvage your system, McAfee works to remove infections as our software installs.
· When you need to know what is happening online, this report shows login times, attempts to access forbidden sites, and total online time. You can also see who is online when.
· Your confidential files like tax forms and bank statements reveal your identity. McAfee Anti-Theft encrypts sensitive documents—even photos—in a password-protected vault on your PC to keep your identity safe from hacking as well as theft or loss of your PC.
· Advanced McAfee SiteAdvisor LIVE software checks and alerts you to risky websites you receive in social media, email, and instant messages and blocks online phishing, when a scammer attempts to steal your personal or confidential information.
Safe URL Sharing:
· Now you can safely and easily share interesting and entertaining content with your social networks, providing web links that your friends can click with confidence. If your link becomes risky before they click, your friends will be warned and protected.
· Make your updates and tweets short, sweet, and safe with our new integrated URL shortening service. You can embed brief, trustworthy URLs that spread the news without spam or malware.
