Check Site for Malware with Google Safe Browsing

By | 2011/12/28

The following URL can be used to check a site for malware:

http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=example.com

The diagnostic url works to check any site, replacing the domain at the end with the site you wish to check.

http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=xxxxxxxx.xxx
