There is nothing worse than having your website flagged by Google for containing Malware. Thankfully, there are many free tools you can use to protect your site from Malware and Viruses. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to protect yourself. For further information on fixing a hacked website click here.
Free AVG Web Page Scanner
AVG LinkScanner will check any web page for suspicious code. To use this tool go to http://www.avg.com.au/resources/web-page-scanner/
Just type in the captcha code and the web page you want to analyze and hit the scan button. Hopefully your happy with the results that are returned?
AVG also offers free virus protection for your computer on their site.
Google Malware Website Check
Google also provides a tool that will check your entire domain for Malware. Just type http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=yourdomainname.com in your browser. Make sure you type your domain name in the area I have highlighted in blue.
You hopefully will receive the same results I did in this image. If your results are positive you are probably safe from the Google ban, but try the next scan to make sure.
Avast Malware and Virus Website Check
Avast offers another free way to check your entire domain completely. All you have to do is download your whole site to your desktop. Then follow these steps to check the entire site for malware.
Click Scan Computer and then Scan Now. You will want to select the folder that contains your downloaded website by clicking Select folder to scan. Then locate the web site you want looked at and start the scan.
Hopefully your happy with the results?
