Scan your website for malware with Sucuri SiteChecker

Website are being attacked more and more, its an every-day process going on. Most vulnerable are CMS platforms like Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress and so on. You cannot know if your own self-hosted website is infected with malware, there is no indication apart from the i.e. Google Safe Browsing API that Chrome utilizes and will inform the visitor that the site contains malware, before opeining the site. But that may be too late and hurt your online reputation for good. For instance, your website may have been infcting visitors' computers for a long time and no one would have noticed.




To preemptivelly check your site for malware, infections and malicious "stuff" on it, you can use a tool called Sucuri Site Checker which you can find at http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/.


Sucuri provides a free online scanner which will take a first look onto your website and see if malicious activity is going on. The catch here is that such online scanners can only look for suspicious stuff on the surface and will not detect i.e. encrypted javascript code injections that can do the same harm to visitors. Still, scanning your site with such tools is a nice tool to see what is going on.


Sucuri's free scanner will not check each and every url of your website and each element on your website, it will only check urls it can immetiatelly find but it actually checks a lot, both html content and imported js files. You can also get information about your system running the site, the version of your CMS platform and is its outdated or not e.t.c.


Also in Sucuri, you will see your website's status in the global blacklists like Google's Safe Browsing or Norton's Safe Web and much more.

Stemming from AMD's acquisition of HiAlgo earlier in 2016, it offers the possibility of huge power and thermal savings while gaming, by monitoring screen movement and adjusting the frame rate accordingly. There is even the claim that it could also reduce response times since the GPU is not occupied with rendering as often.

Its only issue: it's not global, and it's based on a white list of applications to function. But fear not, for we are here. Using a trick as old as operating systems themselves, you can try to make it work with every title. Let's see how to do that.
Step One: Activate Radeon Chill. Doing that is fairly easy. Right click on your desktop and select "Radeon Settings":
