I just discovered this - http://www.scamvoid.com/

It seems to work well, quick and looks good. Using tab browsing makes it easy to check a site.

Any comments ?

Well there sure are a lot of url scanners today! 

It looks good.

 

Fun fact: Sophos actually detect this as a malicious site. (Nothing can be perfect, eh.)


I don't always use Internet Explorer, but when I do, it's to download a different browser.

-- Use 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.

@ HashX

So Sophos says that this is a malicious site do they ?

Virus Total shows that Sophos is the only one out of 53 checker programs that gives the site a black mark.
I would rather trust the other 54 checkers than the only one out of step.

Sophos is a very reputable security vendor but any of them can make a mistake.

I wasn't say you should avoid it- I scanned with Virus Total as well.

I was only posting an irrelevant fact.

IMO "Nothing can be perfect" is not an irrelevant fact. It is what it is.
