Hi All,
 
Got eMailed a weird link from a customer today.  Is there a way to test this link to see if it is up to no good before going to it?  Sort of like VirusTotal.com for web links?
 
Many thanks,
-T

I use: http://www.avgthreatlabs.com/sitereports/

I use http://longurl.org/ to de-obfuscate shortened URLS (currently down as of this post date and time)

alternative de-obfuscate site : http://urlex.org/

More URL Link Scanners:-- I recommend using several different vendors when performing queries to confirm the results of page content. Even doing this, you still need to be cautions of other links on the page itself which can redirect to a malicious page.
