    Great news, even more detection on URLVoid. I don't think anything else is more comprehensive :thumb:

    Yeah, it's good to use for another opinion. I do agree though that it's lacking
    enough engines...did it lose a few in the recent past, seem to remember there
    being more some time ago?

    Yes Dermot7 the number of engines has reduced of late.

    Taken as a whole though with the reputation checking,etc. URLVoid is an extremely useful resource.

    urlvoid could stand to improve their aging mechanism for urls they've previously scanned. i don't know why anyone would care that a url was clean 8 months or more ago, since i'd wager most users would be entering a url to have it scanned *now*. there's lots of reasons for them to defer scanning urls that they've already examined, but imo, it's sort of dumb to return a result from october and force manual rescanning.

    @jaodsvuda: Those scan files, not websites. Completely unrelated.

    @m0unds: What about this?.
