Free web site certificate verification tool from Comodo

Comodo Group : 25 June, 2009  (New Product)
Comodo's verification engine is a lightweight application available free to PC users for verifying the authenticity of visited web sites
The number of phony websites impersonating legitimate ones is on the rise, created by scammers to trick Internet users into divulging their personal information or installing malware.

The process often begins with a legitimate looking but counterfeit customer service email inviting an unsuspecting and under-protected consumer to access one of these bogus sites. This practice, known as "phishing" affects millions of Internet users every year.

As one of the Internet's largest Certification Authorities Comodo has devised ways to distinguish and identify a real website from an impostor. We have created a database of over 500,000 legitimate websites with the real Internet addresses where they can be found.

PC's equipped with Comodo Verification engine, a free, unobtrusive, lightweight application instantly checks this database for every website visited. If it's legitimate and in our database, the border around a user's browser will glow green, and an arrow will point to the site's verified logo. If it doesn't, users are advised to proceed with caution.

Verification engine will also provide a clear visual indicator about the level of SSL security on a site, and warn if a site is using the type of SSL certificate favored by scammers.
