Safe browsing … the google way
Now Google has come up with a great new service for the internet users, that is the Google Safe Browsing Advisory. This way we can atleast have a view, better say Google’s View for whether a site has malicious content or not.. using.. http://google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=
Most interestingly the diagnosis provided by google for google.com itself contains malicious content owing to millions of pages being indexed at Google. Further more the diagnosis of the blog hosting service of Google – blogspot.com too have something in store for your which says “Of the 1148860 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 8630 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent.” again owing to the millions of users using this hosting service and putting up their content.
Take a look at the way a site is diagnosed. Just add the url u want to diagnose at the end of the following URL
Example for my blog it will be http://google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=thinkwitty.com
The various headers for the diagnosis are :
