Is Flagged?

Simple utility to check if a URL is in Google’s Malware API


This tool is going to check if any URLs from your site are currently listed in a couple of Phishing DBs. If it finds any the tool will let you know if Google has the URL flagged for Social Engineering. It is also going to check the URL you enter to see if it is currently listed in Google’s Malware API, if Google has the URL flagged.

When you submit the tool will query the API to see if the URL is listed and respond with -


1. Google’s Malware API will return "SOCIAL_ENGINEERING" if a URL is flagged for "traditional phishing" OR if the site is flagged for "deceptive content".
2. The tool is also going to try and check the IP your site is hosted on, If you are on shared hosting the URL may or may not be from your site.
3. If your search results are labeled "This site may be hacked" typically that is going to be some sort of spam hack and your site will not be listed in the Malware API, this utility will return null.
