Question Tools to find malware URLs in forum

More
2 years 6 months ago #1 by robdotinfo
Just received a message from a user:

opened a link in the forum (pretty sure it was the surfski school in glebe) and copped a ransom ware virus. Might be worth checking. Lost all pictures , music , documents and about 8 hours cleaning it out. Not certain which link but malwarebytes went berserk when I rechecked my history.


I've manually looked through all the recent threads and can find no suspicious looking links.

I'm very careful about who I let onto the forum - first two posts are moderated and since I switched that on, I've had no spammers on the site.

It's possible that this guy found a very old thread that had a URL to a bad site on it. I'm not sure why his browser security didn't pick it up.

Are there any tools where I can scan all the posts in the forum to look for bad URLs?

Any other advice on what to do would be welcome - if a rumour gets out that the site links to ransomware, I'm toast!
