How do I test if a Link is REALLY malicious or not ? I use VirusTotal, but I suspect that it is not useful at all. To see why, please read further.
I wanted to find out which side the stomach is on. So, i went to wiki answers http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_side_is_the_stomach_on. On the top right corner, I accidentally clicked an ad which looks like a boxing game. It took me to a website which looks like a "spin the wheel game". This is the URL, which i obfuscated using @@@ - http:@@@//@@@ @@@winspinwin.net@@@/@@@spinner@@@/@@@freespin.php?
I used VirusTotal URL Scanner to scan the wiki page and the url of the ad, it was all clean. But, I suspect that it is not. It could have been a drive by :(
Is there any way to be sure that visiting the link did not harm me ?
