Malware Sniper is a clever little tool designed to work for programmers, website hosts and owners in order to help them identify malicious code and potentially harmful viruses. The application uses an external database which is constantly updated with new virus signatures and while it scans your website, it cross-references results with known threats.
Right off the bat, Malware Sniper is an application designed to be almost independent of you, its user. Not in the sense that you can’t really control it but because it requires very little input from your part in order for it to do its job.
The security tool displays a user-friendly interface which lets you know right away that you won’t waste any time configuring it and it all fairness, there’s not much in terms of settings anyway.
A simple and efficient scan process
As mentioned before, Malware Sniper needs just a bit of guidance in order to help you out. The most important, if not the only thing you have to do, is enter the URL of one or more websites you want to scan, and with a simple click of a button it starts to monitor the targets.
One thing you should be aware of is the fact that Malware Sniper won’t deliver results in the blink of an eye. Depending on the size of the website it can take from a couple of minutes to a few hours.
During the scan, Malware Sniper provides in its main window information about the number of URLs that have been scanned, along with that of detected and removed threats. If an anomaly or malicious string is found, the application promptly notifies you, ensuring that you have time to take immediate action.
Check website integrity
To wrap things up, though it’s small in stature, Malware Sniper proves to be a security tool with a lot of potential which can definitely prove handy.
