"Web admins and owners are being offered a free service that will scan their sites for malware hijacks, alerting them automatically if malicious code is found. The QualysGuard Malware Detection, launched as a beta this week, uses a combination of ‘static’ and behavioural analysis to take a closer look at web pages under a given domain, studying them for code irregularities that could spell trouble.
Static analysis is basically a technique for hunting down common forms of suspect code found on compromised web pages, while the behavioural goes a stage further by actually running each page in a virtualised but unpatched Windows PC and browser to see what it actually does. Run daily, if the service discovers a problem, website admins are informed right down to the specific slices of code on specific pages." – Content courtesy of Websites offered free anti-hijack scans – Techworld.com
