Malware Detection

Malware Scanner's sole purpose is to catch malware or viruses attacking websites. If and when malware is found injected onto your site, we will send you an email with the URL that the malicious code is affecting, as well as the line of code it starts and ends on. This allows you to resolve the problem quickly before being blacklisted by search engines.

Frequently asked questions

  • What is Site Scanner?

    Site Scanner helps you prevent, detect and recover from website malware attacks and keep your site safe. It allows you to check a website for malicious code by scanning each page of your website to determine if hackers have infected it with malware. If malicious code is detected inside your code you will receive a notification immediately so you can take action fast.

    We have teamed up with StopTheHacker, the most advanced service that helps identify and protect sites from known and unknown viruses. Unlike most anti-virus systems that detect website malware after it has been reported as bad, StopTheHacker understands the behaviour of viruses which allows it to discover never-before-identified pieces of malicious code before anyone else.

    The scanner solution from 123 Reg is different from any other website malware detection tools because it uses Artificial Intelligence to find security threats. This advanced feature also helps us find the vulnerabilities within your site and show you how you can protect it from the latest viruses.

    Our advanced website malware detection can find malicious code within various website elements, such as: HTML, PHP, JavaScript, iFrames, HTTP links, redirections, Flash, .exe files, Ads and more.

    If bad code is detected when we check a website for malware, our system can automatically remove it for you so you can have peace of mind and focus on your business instead. However, you get to decide if you want us to scan and detect the bad code and allow you to fix the infected files or have us apply the fixes automatically.

    Our Site Scanner will also run a daily check on the status of your site on Google’s Safe Browsing List to ensure it’s not blacklisted by Google. If we discover it has been blacklisted on Google or other major search engines such as Yahoo or Bing, you will be notified immediately and will also receive support to help you remove it from the search engine’s blacklist.

    Once you purchase your Site Scanner, your site will show the SiteSeal from 123 Reg that will ensure your visitors and customers that it’s safe for browsing.
