Return of Porn-Fetching 'YapBrowser' Raises Eyebrows Posted on Sat 3 Jun 2006, 12:39 AM

"A rogue Web browser that was removed from the Internet after security researchers found it was serving up child porn advertising has suddenly reappeared, with a peculiar twist.

The YapBrowser, also known as YapSearch or YapCash, now comes with an odd claim that users can expect protection from harmful exploits and viruses.

The site hosting the browser download originates from Russia and includes an "adult version" that lets users search for and browse pornography-themed content for free."
