Hi all,

I have seen some web sites with antivirus protection. They say "Protected by Norten","Protected By McFEE" like wise. I would like to know whether there is a free virus protection system I can add to my web site. It should check my site for virus regularly. So, if any of you know, please let me know.

Thanks

To manually check periodically, something like this:

To check automatically, it depends on your server platform (linux? windows? apache? php? telnet/ssh access?). One possibility would be to run your web content through a proxy server. I've never done this and it's probably horribly inefficient for a busy site.

Security is a lot more than just installing a script, though. You need to secure your site on multiple levels, from direct access to the underlying code to judicious scripting methods.

About 2 years ago my blog site had a malicious post that used javascript obfuscation to inject a bad-actor iframe. Wordpress has since fixed the problem that allowed such a threat, but the point is that I learned about it when google.com showed my site as being compromised. Until then I didn't even know google monitored this kind of thing!

Of Course. But right now I am seeking for a software or service for my future reference.

You can't install these unless you're on a VPS or dedicated server.
Not possible on shared hosting.
