    Checking the malevolence of a site

    Yesterday on Facebook i clicked a link however as soon as i clicked it i got secondthoughts about it, the link was taking quite long to load and i closed the window. The irony was that i was about to install NoScript and did soon after. Is there a way i can check if the site itself was malicious? The site was ho4l.info but i wouldn't recommend clicking it since i'm uncertain of it's nature

    Hi, Resplendent Raven.

    It's actually

    link.ly

    I would stay away, just my preference.

    If you are using firefox, install

    Code:
    ghostery

    Yeah, any time a site asks you to sign on with another site's credentials, run away.

    This seems to be a good site to check other sites

    http://www.urlvoid.com/

    It seems to take a while to scan though.

    Good one. Next to that there's a host of sites that can run checks like

    http://safebrowsing.clients.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site={fqdn}
    http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/{fqdn}/summary/
    http://www.projecthoneypot.org/search_ip.php?vid={ip}
    http://www.pagesinventory.com/ip/{ip}.html
    http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/{fqdn}
    http://fspamlist.com/checkspammers/index.php?name=&email=&ip={ip}&submit=check
    http://www.unmaskparasites.com/
    http://www.maliciousnetworks.org/index.php
    http://www.stopbadware.org/home/reportsearch

    ...but they're quite disparate in terms of data "freshness", what slice of the 'net they cover, what checks are performed and such. For instance I trust projecthoneypot to be more accurate than any WOT-like sites (because they allow input by people who aren't experts). OTOH while google covers a lot of the 'net it doesn't mean I trust it or siteadvisor blindly.
