Google Anti-Malware Provides Diagnosis

Google malware diagnosis page is an overview page that lists information in order to potential problems like trojans or exploits for any domain. By appending "safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=" to the end of URL + any domain name, Google will show you:

  • The current listing status of the site
  • How Google visited the site
  • Whether the site acted as an intermediary resulting in further distribution of malware
  • Whether the site has hosted malware

For example, the link below shows you the current status of

"Despite all of these findings, is not listed as suspicious, probably because the domain is whitelisted or the suspicious content is not very significant. It's likely that the domains listed above are from Google's search results, so that means the anti-malware system doesn't respect robots.txt".
