Happy Birthday Unmask Parasites!

Exactly one year ago I purchased the UnmaskParasites.com domain name and made the first early beta version of my new service available for public testing.

One year later Unmask Parasites is still in beta but now it’s a much more mature service that has proven its viability.

Many interesting things happened during this year.  I’m not a good writer to make it an interesting reading, so I’ll only list some milestones, facts and statistics here.

New Version of Unmask Parasites Released

27 Jan 09   Filed in Unmask Parasites with Comments Off

Happy Chinese New Year!

I’ve got a new version of Unmask Parasites. It’s a free online tool that helps site owners reveal hidden security problems. Hope you will like it.

Safe Browsing Integration.

The major new feature is the integration with Google’s Safe Browsing project. Now examined links and all referenced domains are checked against Google’s blacklist. It’s the same list that Firefox 3, Safari and Google Chrome use.

The results will clearly indicate whether a page links to suspicious sites (bad neighborhoods) or generates security warnings in Google’s search results and in popular modern web browsers. Continue »»

Unmask Parasites: 10,000 checked pages and counting

11 Dec 08   Filed in Unmask Parasites with Comments Off
Milestone: 10002 checked pages

Unmask Parasites online service has reached the level of 10,000 checked web pages. 556 of the checked pages were found suspicious. It’s more than 5%. The real number of checked compromised web pages is even higher since in most cases Unmask Parasites leaves it up to a site owner to decide whether detected redirects and scripts are actually malicious.

Hope Unmask Parasites has helped many site owners detect and resolve tricky security problems.

Thanks to all who used the service, helped test and improve it.

Get ready for some new interesting features.

P.S. I tried to catch the moment when the counter displays 10,000 to take a screenshot. I reloaded the page: … 9993, 9998, 9999, 1002. Although I missed the page with the round number I felt quite happy. Hope when the counter reaches 1,000,000 someone will take a screenshot for me ;-)
