Unmask Parasites. Do you know the dark side of your site?

Unmask Parasites. Do you know the dark side of your site?

My page got flagged by someone's antivirus because I hosted the ad or link of a bad blog on my site. Through careful searching I found that this certain blog was on Entrecard and BlogCatalog. They install bad things on your computer!!! So I searched for ways to find spyware or malware on my blog and found some great tools. This is one of them. I wanted to share it here so you can all test your own blogs for bad things that could keep you from showing up in searches and stuff. I myself didn't realize if I posted someone's link or blog and IT hosted bad things that I could get flagged as well. Now I have run every scan known to man and I have searched my Google Analytics and everything else and it says my page is clean! So hopefully it's no longer an issue. I can't tell you the name of the bad blog here because it would probably flag me again. Even though my own site is NOT installing anything bad, that site is and even mentioning it's name on your site is bad. However if you want to know, send me an e-mail and I'll tell you what it is.

Yikes. I know it isn't me. I have Norton and it catches tons of awful stuff. Most of the time I don't know where it's coming from though. You should tell Entrecard. Just saying. :)
