A Site to See: SpyBye

By John Wagley

A growing number of legitimate Web sites are unknowingly hosting malware that can infect visitors. SpyBye can help Web masters determine whether their site is hosting such browser exploits.

The site can be configured as a proxy server or it can be downloaded and run as a utility. As you click around your Web site, a report is provided on each activated URL. If some of the URLs don’t look like they belong, they could be harboring malicious content. The site also submits URLs through a rule-based engine that includes a list of known malicious sites. The site also contains reports that place each URL into one of three categories: unknown, harmless, or dangerous.
