Blackhat URLs: the website analysis
The “Blackhat URLs” now provide users with access to extensive website analysis. The tool records the most relevant search terms from frequently used search engines ranging from Google to DuckDuckGo, as well as from social media channels and other online platforms. The results of these searches, which cover more than 300,000 websites every day, are then analyzed by the automated detection systems, which inform users about the latest suspicious and dangerous websites and online content on a day-to-day basis. This tool therefore provides you with information such as a current overview on the proliferation of malware, which can be precisely classified in categories such as Trojans or crypto miners. The Blackhat URLs tool also reports websites that distribute potentially unwanted applications (PUA). All in all, the Blackhat URLs provide reliable support when it comes to identifying and avoiding dangerous websites and their content as quickly as possible.
