MalwareBlacklist Partners with SparkTrust to Help Infected Websites
The MalwareBlacklist service has partnered with SparkTrust Certified to inform owners of detected websites about why they are being flagged, and what they need to do to make their sites secure.
Victoria, B.C., November 25, 2011 – ParetoLogic's MalwareBlacklist has partnered with SparkTrust Certified to help owners of infected websites find out more about how they were attacked. The database of infected and dangerous URLs is now offering a free SparkTrust Certified report, available from the MalwareBlacklist website. The free report gives website owners in-depth information on their site's potential vulnerabilities, active infections, insecure databases, and more.
Jerome Segura, Administrator of MalwareBlacklist and Business Development Manager of SparkTrust, explained that "there is a misconception that malicious websites are created by cyber criminals. While a lot of them are, most turn out to be legitimate websites that have been hacked."
MalwareBlacklist, a notable security resource created by ParetoLogic, uses automated scans, industry connections, and public submissions to grow their list of websites that are known to contain malicious activity. The information is shared with the public, as well as with other security researchers and security services. However, this is the first time that MalwareBlacklist has endeavored to reach out and actively assist websites that have been flagged.
"In less than an hour, you can view a comprehensive and clear state of the security of your website and immediately take action. This report is totally free and only requires a simple validation to ensure you are the owner of the site you wish to check out," said Segura.
SparkTrust, providers of the free report, have demonstrated their expertise in the field with their web safety and security services. The company provides Hands Free care for online businesses that need to protect their websites from hacks, vulnerabilities, and malware.
Paul Lechner, General Manager of SparkTrust, added that the report does not hold back any information, is not time limited, and provides full disclosure. "If website owners need assistance cleaning malware, fixing vulnerabilities, and bringing their websites up to code, then we invite them to look at SparkTrust services. But the report is completely free for anyone."
MalwareBlacklist, and the free report, can be found at malwareblacklist.com.
