I’m not a big fan of community based assessment tools like WOT, as the results can be wildly off. However, for those who like these sorts of things, if you use firefox with noscript, you can middle-click on a site, blocked by noscript, and be taken to the selection in the image.
Sure , but despite the “similarities” it would be worth mentioning the convenience/advantages of using VTzilla - the Add-On for Firefox , where it is just a matter of right-clicking in order to check the link
P.S. I forgot to post that you can use Dr.Web’s LinkChecker as well in order to scan sites for malware suspects (with familiar right-clicking). You may test it & add that to your article
There is no surefire way of knowing if a site is malicious and scanning the site for malware won’t always help.
Things like SiteInspector, PrevX SafeOnline, NoScript etc. are helpful but not foolproof.
I know this is not the solution for all problems but
I have seen Firefox pop up with a This is a Reported Attack Site.(Block Reported Attack Sites,
Block Reported Web Forgeries is built into Firefox).
So there are multiple levels of security on your computer,depending on
what you use.
