Microsoft Research has released one of its Strider tools, URL Tracer. Security Watch says it “reveals all of the links beneath a given URL. This allows you to see what third-party domains are being linked to from within a given site, possibly links to adware and/or spyware domains. The tool can also scan for domains that are based on typo errors related to the desired URL. Some typo-squatting sites serve up adult content, and URL Tracer allows you to block such domains.”
This is a godsend to parents who are concerned about what their kids might access. Download now.
