Web giant changes provider of free security software for members.
Giant ISP and web services provider AOL is offering a free, special edition version of McAfee security software to users registered with its network. The offer replaces a previous offering based on Kaspersky technology, which was quietly taken offline several weeks ago.
The customized product, based on McAfee's Internet Security Suite, combines anti-virus and anti-spyware with a firewall and identity theft protection. The AOL Active Virus Shield software, a pared-down version of Kaspersky Internet Security 6, was also made available free of charge, from August of last year.
