How to Check Websites For Malware Infection

If hackers gain access a website, they can force it to distribute malware to visitors. Visitors’ computers could get infected with viruses, spyware, adware, keyloggers or other malware. If you’re a website owner, you might want to know whether your site compromised by malware or not. Visitors can also test a suspected site to avoid any possible infection.

 Here is a simple online solution called SparkTrust to check websites for malware. The SparkTrust scanner is free and very simple to use. Simply enter a URL that you want to check, click Scan button and wait for the result.
 
 As you can see in the screenshot below, the tool look for different types of malicious activities on a website (Pharma Hack, Conditional Redirects, iFrame, Malicious JavaScript, Malicious PHP Files and Google Safe Browsing) and lists there.

  I hope the information it provides can be useful for analyzing and cleaning an infected site more easily.
