Free Malware Scanning Service SiteInspector Launched By Comodo

Security solutions provider Comodo released a free service called SiteInspector, designed to scan websites for pieces of malware and compare them against a range of blacklisting services, such as the ones offered by Google Safe Browsing, PhishTank or Malwaredomainlist.

Drive-by-download malware attacks launched from websites that fall victim to mass infections are highly common these days. SiteInspector allows users to choose 3 pages on a domain that they want monitored. If the service identifies any trace of malicious elements, the customer is immediately notified via email.

In these situations, one of the main problems is that the owner doesn’t even know that his site is altered to serve pieces of malware. Another issue is that once the site is infected, blacklisting services, such as the ones run by Google, will restrict the traffic, a measure that can have devastating consequences for the business workflow.

This is why security firms come up with such tools and services. SiteInspector can take that burden off the shoulders of the administrator and automatize the malware scanning and blacklist monitoring process.

“SiteInspector dramatically reduces the time between problem identification to problem resolution for business websites,” Melih Abduhayoglu, Comodo CEO and chief architect, revealed. “No longer will businesses have to wait for angry customers to complain that their website contains malicious content. To take advantage of this essential service, webmasters just need to take a few minutes to sign up and configure the service. SiteInspector will do the rest.”

The service includes features such as automatically recurring daily scans on three webpages, daily verifications against blacklists, email notification in case of an infection, threat mitigation advice in the situation where a malicious element is found, and an easy-to-use interface for users.

Website owners and administrators can sign up for the service right away at

    1. if you have more than one antivirus (Windows denefder counts) or firewall (Windows firewall counts) They will conflict with each other and beat ur computers ass basically lol.Never ever have more than 2 of a firewall or antivirus going at one time, on demand scanners are fine though like malwarebytes/superantispyware.
