Live Search Adds Malware Reporting

Posted on 11.27.2008

Microsoft's Live Search Webmaster Center Team announced that its updated tool now shows if any malware is found associated with your site.

As Live Search crawls the Web, it flags all pages containing or linking to detected malware with a “Malware” warning message in the search engine results page and disables the link to the page to protect customers. This enables website owners to determine whether any malware has been detected on an of their webpages and download offline-acessible repotis which detail the webpages that are affected by the detected malware. The Webmaster Center team is also now providing the ability to filter outbound links to see those that might specifically link to pages infected with malware. By reviewing this list and removing the bad links, site owners can prevent the users of a site from accidentally installing software that is harmful.

Microsoft has also made it easer for webmasters to authenticate their sites. The Webmaster Center team has simplified the authentication process by allowing one authentication code for all of your sites.
