There are several websites out there to check potentially dangerous website addresses. We reviewed several of these website tools and listed a few that were easy to use and provided good information. We would recommend checking the malicious URL at 2 or 3 of the links provided to verify if it’s a threat or not.

- Google Safe Browsing: https://transparencyreport.google.com/safe-browsing/search
Google’s Safe Browsing technology examines billions of URLs per day looking for unsafe websites.

- Pulsedrive: https://pulsedive.com/
Why check 30 different solutions for varying snippets of data when you can just check one? Pulsedive enriches IOCs but also fetches article summaries from Wikipedia and even posts from Reddit and the infosec blogosphere to provide contextual information for threats.
- Threatminer: https://www.threatminer.org/
ThreatMiner is designed to be an analyst’s FIRST portal to visit when doing threat research and here’s why.
Threat intelligence and intrusion analysts who regularly perform research into malware and network infrastructure often find the need to rely on mutliple websites that individually holds a small piece of the larger puzzle.
It is also often the case where pivoting directly from an open source research report is unavailable and that it is sometimes difficult to remember if an indicator has already been reported and/or attributed. All these small but frustrating obstacles distract an analyst from what they do best: analyse. This is why ThreatMiner was created.
- Trend Micro Site Safety Center: https://global.sitesafety.trendmicro.com/index.php
Scores are assigned based on factors such as a website’s age, historical locations, changes, and indications of suspicious activities discovered through malware behavior analysis. We’ve advanced how we apply web reputation to keep pace with new types of criminal attacks that can come and go very quickly, or try to stay hidden.
- Zscaler: https://zulu.zscaler.com/
Back in the day when your users were all on the network and your applications resided in your physical data center, it made sense to establish a secure perimeter around your network. But those days are over, the perimeter is gone, and network security is all but irrelevant.
Instead, you need to put your defenses and controls where the connections occur— the internet — so that every connection is fast and secure, no matter how or where users connect or where their applications reside.
By moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud and untethering employees from their desks, you can realize tremendous advantages in productivity, agility, and cost containment. With our 100% cloud built secure platform, Zscaler can help you make the move to the cloud, securely.
