SiteCheck Extended – Making It Easier to Scan Your Websites

2 minute read

Sucuri SiteCheck is our free website malware scanner that crawls any website to detect signs of Malware injections, SEO Spam, Blacklisting, Defacement and other similar indicators of a compromised website.

It is widely used by Webmasters to verify if their sites have not been compromised or blacklisted. And now we’re extending it to other platfroms, by making it easier to use from multiple devices and products.

Please be sure to take a minute to understand how SiteCheck works, then leverage it on your own web properties to show visitors that your site is malware-free.

Webmasters will have the ability to scan websites directly from browsers (Chrome and Firefox) as well as from within any CMS dashboard, like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal.

Here is how you can now integrate SiteCheck. Please be sure to read below to see how each widget and plugin can work for your website or web property.
