[The Chosun Ilbo, December 27 2007] Yahoo, ESTsoft Offer Free Anti-Virus Programs

Some Internet companies are now offering free vaccine programs that can detect and treat computer viruses in real time.

Yahoo Korea said Wednesday that it will provide a free service to detect and treat viruses in real time through its Yahoo Toolbar application.

While the company has offered a free anti-virus program since September, the real-time detection function is new and a first for an Internet portal.

ESTsoft, a software developer, said it will start distributing its new vaccine program Alyac for free starting Thursday. Anyone who wants to use it can download it from the company's website (www.alyac.co.kr).
