Web InspectorComodo announced last week that our Web Inspector service now also uses the advanced malware detection technologies of their award winning Comodo Internet Security to identify malicious code on a web page. Comodo Web Inspector is a cloud-based malware scanning service that detects thousands of security threats and attack vectors on e-commerce websites. In addition to utilizing Comodo Antivirus technology, Web Inspector also uses dynamic page analysis, buffer overflow detection, and signature based detection. The newly added heuristic detection techniques can potentially detect previously unknown malicious code, protecting users from zero-day attacks.

Online shopping provides consumers the perfect alternative to battling the crowded malls during the holiday season and, instead, enables shoppers to find great deals from the comfort of their home. But, according to the 2012 Annual Report by, “The retail industry is now the top target for cybercriminals with e-commerce sites at the top of the list, accounting for 48% of all investigations.” The rise in retail cybercrime proves that trust and reputation are critical to the success of your business. This is a key reason why Web Inspector uses the power of Comodo Cloud Antivirus (AV) checking to detect viruses and malware, giving users the most up-to-date results. DNS hijacking protection has also been added to Web Inspector to alert online businesses to DNS spoofing attacks as well as TrustLogo® tracking which ensures all your web pages are automatically scanned.

Trust is one of the single most important factors influencing customers browsing online and Web Inspector is made to protect your customers online, by protecting your website,” said Melih Abduhayoglu, Comodo CEO and Chief Architect. “It is evident that cybercriminals will never cease their attempts to compromise systems, so we will never cease to improve products like Web Inspector which stop these attacks as soon as they are detected.

Web Inspector  detects any vulnerability to being attacked and protects your website from thousands of security threats, daily. It also embeds PCI Compliance scanning for e-commerce websites that accept credit card payments, to keep them compliant with the payment card industry’s mandatory standards. Upcoming functionality includes server side scanning where businesses can provide Comodo with direct access to the website source files via SSH or FTP. With this access, Comodo can check for:

  • Insecure Files/Folders Permissions
  • .htaccess Hack
  • Malicious PHP Shell Attacks
  • Malicious or Suspicious Code
  • Phishing Page
  • Webpage Defacement
