 Scan websites for viruses

About URLVoid:


Go to NoVirusThanks Company [ URLVoid  ]which was launched 21 May 2010.Simply write the website address in the input box and click the button "Scan Now".Generally a report is generated in 20 seconds but it can take up to 30 seconds.In my test of [  ] it took 22 seconds with [ Opera  ]and it is quite satisfactory .If the website is detected by at least 2 engines it is listed as suspicious else if it is detected by more than 2 engines it is listed as dangerous.If the website has been classified as safe or if it has not yet been tested by the engines it is listed as clean.At the moment  this service only scan for domains and sub domains scanning of IP addresses not there currently.


It caches reports of a scan for 10 days, after the 10 days if you will rescan the website, its report will be updated. This is done to avoid the scan of the same website for too many times in the same day and to not stress the engines in use. is a service developed by NoVirusThanks Company and started on 21 May 2010 that allows users to scan a website address with multiple scanning engines such as Google Diagnostic, McAfee SiteAdvisor, Norton SafeWeb, MyWOT to facilitate the detection of possible dangerous websites. You should take in mind that even if a site is listed as clean by all scanning engines, it is NOT guaranteed the harmlessness of the website analyzed.Before scan a website it checks if the website exists and if it is actually active, in case the website is not anymore active or it does not exist you should get a report that say the website is inaccessible or it does not exist and will not be scanned.


How can I clean infected files from my website ?


If you want to clean the infected files, you need to find the malicious code (generally inserted at the end of the files or mixed with the code in the middle of the text) and then you can remove the infected code. If all the files of your website are infected, you can write a script in bash or php that can recursively scan all files of your website and find + delete the malicious code.
