Free Web antimalware tool offered up

Free stuff has been a vendor mainstay to build a customer base, and start-up Dasient is trying that with a lightweight version of its open source technology for detecting and fixing Web pages compromised with malware.

Mod Anti-Malware Lite is a free software module that's added to an Apache Server in order to detect infected Web pages so they don't end up on black lists maintained by Google and several security vendors. According to Neil Daswani, Dasient co-founder, the Lite version does not have the full functionality of the server software module used as part of the Web Anti-Malware service announced earlier this year, which is able to detect and clean a Web page.

Hat tip to Donna ;)
