Many a time we come across websites that can contain malware and phishing scams. Although, there are a number of extensions available to provide some sort of security, they require visiting the website for them to work. By then it can be too late if the malware infects your system. Moreover, a website can be infected by a virus when one transfers a file to the FTP server for deployment and by many other means.
URLVoid is a free web service that scans any specified website with a number of diagnostic tools such as Browse Defender, Google Diagnostics, hpHosts, Malware Patrol, McAfee SiteAdvisor, Norton SafeWeb, etc and provides a detailed scanning result.
