The Honeynet Project Releases New Tool: PhoneyC

Sounds like a useful tool for probing websites you’re just not sure about.

PhoneyC is a virtual client honeypot, meaning it is not a real application (that can be compromised by attackers and then monitored for analysis of attacker behavior), but rather an emulated client, implemented in Python. The main thing it does is scour web pages looking for those that attack the browser.

It can be run, for example, as: $ python phoneyc.py -v http://www.google.com
