Does anybody know of a program or service that'll tell you whether or not a given server (someone else's) has a virus?

Asked by Nullo (21939points) March 16th, 2010

I suspect that some merry prankster has infected the Drudge Report website with one, and I want to see if I’m right.

there’s a link scanner plugin for most browsers at download.com. Web of Trust also has a good head on what’s going down in the alleys of cyberspace.

In today’s world, if there ain’t some kind of virus, something is wrong.

I’m of the inclination that the antivirus companies hire proxy hackers to write the viruses if not outright writing them. Even the government has to bow to experts in the field of cybercrime, and in this way, this pillar of American Plutocracy is held firm.
