Malware, short for malicious software, is typically installed on a website by hackers who find weaknesses — also known as vulnerabilities — in a website's code. Malware can spread viruses, steal personal or financial data, and even hijack computers. SiteLock, the global leader in website security, has highly advanced website scanners that perform daily scans across 5 million websites to detect malware and vulnerabilities as soon as they hit.
SiteLock scans a website from the user's point of view (outside-in) and catches signs of malware before site managers do. This website scan finds malware and links to any dangerous websites that could harm the user's computer.
SiteLock scans a website's IP and domain against leading spam databases to check if they are listed as a spammer. If the IP is found, SiteLock alerts the website owner and removes the site's Trust Seal.
The Network Scan checks thousands of ports on a server to ensure appropriate ports are open for the correct server type. Customers are alerted of any high-risk items.
SQL Injection is one of the most common vulnerabilities. The SiteLock SQL Injection Scan makes sure websites are only accepting safe input to avoid leaking data to hackers through their websites.
Cross-site Scripting is also a very common vulnerability that can be used to steal visitor's data or trick visitors into providing data to third parties. SiteLock checks for vulnerabilities and notifies customers of any problems.
Outdated or vulnerable applications are the most popular way for hackers to gain access to websites and data. The SiteLock Application Scan checks applications on a website to verify they are up-to-date and free from vulnerabilities.
The SiteLock Daily FTP Scan goes beyond the website's surface to identify malicious or suspicious files anywhere in the code or the web application to ensure the website is not being utilized by cybercriminals to aid in attacks.
TrueCode Static Application Security Testing (SAST), or "white-box" testing, finds common vulnerabilities by performing a deep analysis of your applications without actually executing them.
Protect your website from SQL injection. SQL injection gives hackers access to your website and customer database. SiteLock probes your website just like a hacker would to find weak spots.
SiteLock website scanners protect your website from landing on search engine and email blacklists with monitoring and reputation management. Make sure your communications reach your customers, not their spam filters or anti-virus software. Most importantly, our website scanners catch malware long before Google spots it and shuts your website down.
Deep website scans tell you when any file on your website changes, giving you full visibility to all of the activities on your site.
Verify your business e-mail, phone number, and address to give customers the confidence that they can reach you in the case of any question or concern.
Once SiteLock completes your website scanning and verifies your site is malware-free, you can proudly display the SiteLock Secure Seal on your website. Displaying this badge shows visitors that your site is verified to be safe by the leader in website security.
SiteLock's team of website security experts and engineers is ready to help you with your website security needs. If your website has already been hacked or blacklisted, you came to the right place.
