ICM Registry in Deal With McAfee for Malware Scans

PALM BEACH, Fla. —  ICM Registry on Monday said it has struck a deal with McAfee for a free malware scan for every .XXX domain.

The deal would include McAfee's "trustmark" and date stamp, ICM said. 

Every .XXX domain will be scanned for vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, browser exploits and phishing sites, reputational analysis and malware, Stuart Lawley, CEO of ICM Registry, said in a statement.

"This has never been done before and further supports our aim to create a clearly defined web address for adult entertainment, as free as possible from fraud or malicious computer viruses,” Lawley said.

ICM estimates the deal with McAfee to be worth $8 million.
