What did strike me is how the nature of this research has changed in recent years. Not so long ago checking out a potentially infected website would have involved VMs or goat machines and a lot of patience and trial and error. Today there are so many sites that will do the basics for you. Greg sent us a link to URLQuery which displays a lot of information about a website including the fact that this one is infected.
In this case what most intrigued me was the blacklist status of the website.
At the time of my review the infection was still being picked up by the various blacklist websites. Between the time I took this screenshot and when I finished this diary, SiteAdvisor had picked it up and I will assume the others will follow close behind.
Have any web based tools you like? Please pass them on through comments to this diary!
Have a great weekend!
