Website Information – Security and Website Tips
In a recent conversation on youtube, where I had a small group of strange and goofy internet atheists trolling my videos, which interestingly enough got a lot of attention. I had one guy, who use to troll my videos until I blocked him, tell me on several channels that my website has malware and is compromised.
Which was easy to dismiss, and gave me a great opportunity to give some advice on internet security. This is a video that I made for helping people with internet security, and how to check websites without having to visit them first.
Then he came back with “you have youtube TOS violations, and you use bots for youtube”.
To which I had a video that I was working on when he made that comment. So I posted this video. Which not only gives additional security tips, as well as some SEO tips.
My reply is:
If you have no evidence, then you have no case. The malware thing was a sure dud. Easy to prove. Anyone with half a brain can figure out how to use the internet. Apparently you cant. For anyone that wants to find out if a website has now, or EVER has had a malware script on their site, there are PLENTY of resources for that.
There are a lot of good tools to see if a website has viruses, or is dangerous, or if it has been blacklisted.
This particularly tool: https://virustotal.comCheck with 67 different reporting sites to see if a site has malware.
This tool gives comprehensive information on what the site has as far as scripts, programming, platforms etc, and also scans for viruses and malware;
This is google’s tool: https://transparencyreport.google.com/
The last thing that I wanted to mention, there is a way that someone can see past versions of pages, and this archive goes back decades.
Another thing to check for on a site, is the SSL certificate. It in the address bar of the browser, typically located in the top left hand corner.
