Finjan Software Inc. today joined the ranks of vendors offering free site security-ranking services by unveiling SecureBrowsing, a plug-in for Internet Explorer and Firefox that warns users of risky Web sites.


The browser plug-in scans each link in the results generated by the search engines from Google Inc., Yahoo Inc. and Microsoft Corp. in real time, then ranks the URLs so users can decide whether to click through. The scans, said Finjan, examine all the dynamic code components of the page and detect potentially malicious code hosted on sites with a behavior-based scanner rather than relying on blacklists.
