F-Secure Labs is launching a new feature in Browsing Protection today.
Web security has become increasingly important over the last few years and we've already developed various protection mechanisms to keep our customers safe against exploits, phishing attacks, and drive-by-downloads. However, there's still more that we can do against some of the most sinister of attacks.
In development for more than two years, we're now releasing completely new technology that will warn our customers whenever they click on a "Rickroll" link.
Never again will our customers unknowingly visit the infamous video of Rick Astley performing "Never Gonna Give You Up".
The new feature is called F-Secure Rickroll Protector. The technology is based on advanced image recognition analysis that monitors HTTP traffic for signs of bright red pompadours.
