Re: I got hacked!

One way to check before opening the page is to use Norton Safe Web and check a link before you go there:
»safeweb.norton.com/

It does require JavaScript to be enabled, so you would have to allow that site with NoScript.

There is also McAfee's SiteAdvisor (also requires JavaScript to be enabled):
»www.siteadvisor.com/

Norton Safe Search is not compatible with Firefox v17.0.1 as it is with MS Internet Explorer and doesn't display Norton approved websites as shown above.

Norton Safe Web, which was what I mentioned, is a web page you go to and enter the address you want to check to see if they assess it as safe (just like the McAfee link I gave). It's not a plug-in. Firefox can update and break many plug-ins, but either site to check to see if a specific page is safe will still work.

Here are the links again:
»safeweb.norton.com/
»www.siteadvisor.com/
