New AOL software gives added security

Thursday, 18 November 2004, 8:59 AM EST

America Online's new 9.0 Security Edition promises to bring you enhanced spam control, instant spyware identification, and even a keychain than locks your AOL account.

Kerry Parkins, director of product marketing at AOL, says the software targets seven aspects critical to consumer security: firewalls, viruses, spyware, parental control, pop-up ads, spam, and spim, or instant messaging spam. AOL users can download the security edition for free from the AOL Web site starting November 18.
