Today I was talking to a friend of mine who was sent a URL which pointed him to malicious website which took over his facebook account. After talking to him I quickly started searching for free web tools to check urls.
I went ahead and asked a fellow colleague @kelvinlomboy in the IT Security Field to help me identify web tools that can check the Url’s safety.
After a few minutes @kelvinlomboy provided the following link to @lennyzeltser’s blog on “Free Online Tools for Looking Up Potentially Malicious Websites”.
- Current Safety of Site
- No active Threats where reported
- Site Popularity
- Server Location
- Compromised Web Pages in the last 30 days.
- Threat Types found in the last 30 days
I personally thought it was not a great free web tool.
Have you found any other tools that keep you safe on the Internet that you would like to share?
