Malware is a serious issue with websites and to help detect Malware and prevent it there are now a large variety of Website Malware Scanners on the market. What do these scanners actually do?

Scanners will on a daily, weekly or monthly ( depending on the product ) schedule connect to your website and browse through your pages looking for malicious software. A piece of software or code that is implanted by hackers to cause damage, steal information, break security, crime and more. If any Malware is detected you will then be notified right away so you can patch up any vulnerabilities in your website and remove the malicious code. It is always good to remove the malicious code ASAP so as your website does not get blacklisted by google and other major search engines which will cause large amounts of damage to your business.
