Security analysis of a website


Websites can be good sources to transmit viruses, trojans and malware to unsuspecting surfers. If we are suspicious about some sites that we use frequently we can use a very good monitoring tool, called URLvoid, which, although still in beta, is already able to give accurate results.
Just enter the address of the suspicious site and submit. The application,
after a few minutes, will give one of the possible results: clean, suspicious or infected. The analysis is done by calling 19 other online services including Google Diagnostic and McAfee SiteAdvisor. The service is completely free and requires no registration.
