TalkTalk offers website blocking

Internet provider TalkTalk is to give customers the option of filtering malicious or offensive material out of their broadband service.

The company claims it is the first major ISP to offer centralised blocking at server level.

As well as stopping malicious software, parents will be able to prevent their children accessing adult material.

Security professionals have questioned whether the service will be able to react fast enough to new threats.

Smart scan

Conventional systems for blocking internet content rely on security software installed on users’ PCs.

TalkTalk’s Home Safe runs on the company’s central computer system and sits between the web and individual home connections.

Its anti-virus system works by scanning a site that someone wants to visit to see if it harbours malicious programs. Those found to be clean will be put on a “white list” for 24 hours.
