Amankah sebuah web untuk dikunjungi ? atau sebaiknya dihindari ?

Urlvoid.com adalah layanan GRATIS yg didedikasikan oleh NoVirusThanks Company Srl pada akhir bulan Mei 2010 lalu yang bisa dimanfaatkanb para pengguna internet untuk menganalisa alamat website dengan menggunakan setidaknya 29 mesin terpercaya serta domain-domain pengawas blacklist seperti  Google SafeBrowsing, Norton SafeWeb dan MyWOT untuk memfasilitasi, mendeteksi kemungkinan website yang berbahaya.

Meskipun begitu, user diharapkan selalu melakukan cek ulang terhadap web yang pernah di analisa, karena kemungkinan statusnya bisa berubahah, hasil deteksi ini tidak benar-benar menjamin keamanan setidaknya setelah setiap 1 hari.

Proses uji yang sangat cepat dibanding layanan sejenis lainnya seperti: WOT (Web of Trust), McAfee SiteAdvisor, AVG LinkScanner, TrendProtect, VirusTotal, Trend Micro Site Safety, dan McAfee Threat Intelligence

Dalam hal ini Urlvoid.com berkolaborasi dengan pihak-pihak: PcTools Browser Defender, Norton SafeWeb, MyWOT, Threat Log, MalwareDomainList, hpHosts, ZeuS Tracker, Google Diagnostic, PhishTank, Project Honey Pot, ParetoLogic, Spamhaus, URIBL, Malware Patrol, SURBL, SpamCop, Finjan, TrendMicro Web Reputation, Web Security Guard, AMaDa, DNS-BH, joewein.de LLC, Spamhaus, DShield, Malc0de.

Mesin yang terlibat dan memfasilitasi dalam proyek ini adalah: MyWOT, BitDefender, Netcraft, Opera, AmaDa, MalwareDomainList, malc0de, ZeuS Tracker, SpyEye Tracker, EXPOSURE, Malware Patrol, PhishTank, DNS-BH, Vscan, Avira , ThreatLog, SCUMWARE, URIBL, MalwareBlacklist, hpHosts, BrowserDefender, TrendMicro, GoogleSafeBrowsing, SpamhausDBL, SURBL, WebSecurityGuard, AVGThreatLabs, URLVir dan oeWein

Melihat keseriusan banyaknya team yang terlibat, hasil analisa ‘CLEAN’ atau “DETECTED’ website dari proyek ini saya rasa memiliki ‘tingkat kepercayaan’ yang baik, tapi untuk membandingkannya serta melihat parameter-parameter lain secara lengkap bisa dilihat di artikel di bawah ini.

Best Free Internet Safety Check
Updated 24. October 2011 – 10:57 by Remah

In the past I’ve relied on parental filters and anti-virus software. Well, now that I’ve been forced to use these safety checks, I’ve find that they are very useful. I sure like checking on a website before I risk browsing it. Even though it doesn’t replace any of my existing security measures – except perhaps the parental filter – this additional layer of security is real useful.

Rating and scanning
The two types of safety check for a web address or URL are rating and scanning. Scan the website for threats (right now when I need it) or rate the reputation of the website using other sources of information: what people think of it, whether it has been associated with any dishonest or illegal activity, and what other security databases have on record which can include the results of your past scans.

Safety checks are easy to install and use
These products are easy to install and use because there are few options to configure. Most run in the background while you browse the Web and only pop-up when they identify a problem. The products mainly install as a browser add-on for each supported web browser. Just be warned that browsing can be noticeably slower and will usually crawl on a dial-up connection or if you run several products at the same time. Often there is a single button added to the toolbar (as with WOT) and sometimes an entire new toolbar (as with LinkExtend).

Online safety checks are an alternative
If you don’t want to install more software on your computer then you can use an online service. You manually check websites by typing or copying the web address into the online check website. They are less convenient but are an effective option particularly to get a second opinion. I’ve included the best in this article but the remainder can be found in the full list of products reviewed.

Web browsers have built-in safety checks
Many of you will realize that you are already using an internet safety rating as a feature of your web browser. For example, Microsoft calls it SmartFilter for Internet Explorer, and Firefox has options to block “reported attack sites” and “reported web forgeries”.  Apart from Internet Explorer, the main web browsers source their safety data from other vendors: Firefox, Chrome and Safari use data from Google Safe Browsing; and Opera relies on AVG. I tested them in the same way as the other products and services. In terms of detecting bad websites they were in the middle third of the products I reviewed.

Color-coded results
Typically, the products present their results with color-coded symbols as shown in the image from Web of Trust (WOT). The WOT scorecard uses rating symbols that have five levels of color from dark green for trustworthy, yellow for concern, and orange to red for dangerous. Grey is used for unrated sites. Most programs work in a similar way, placing an icon beside web links so that moving the mouse over the icon will display the rating; and clicking on the icon or pop-up displays the full scorecard. Online meta-scanners, which use the results of many different scans, are the main exception. Although many use similar colors their rating is usually the fraction of the tests for problems found e.g. 9 of 15, 9/15.

Criteria for this review
I’ve rated these products by looking at six criteria:
·Ratings that are reliable with more information close at hand.
·Scanning that doesn’t slow me down too much.
·Warning about and blocking of risky sites
.Searching options including icons that link to the full rating.
·Compatibility and integration with the web browsers and operating systems.
·Detecting web pages and sites that have active or reported threats
