UrlQuery is a service for detecting and analyzing web-based malware, claims its website, this service is very useful and provides a detailed report of the submitted webpage. We use these services a lot in the lab, so we’ve decided to make our lives easier by developing a simple context menu extension which automatically sends urls to the service.

The extension adds a new option to the contextual menu. This option sends the link under the cursor to urlQuery.

It opens a new tab with the url added to the url’s queue. You have to wait a few seconds, while the url is being scanned, and then the full report is shown.

As urlQuery webpage, this extension has an options page where you can configure the User Agent, Refer, Acrobat Reader and Java versions. Unfortunately, a few options are provided by the original page, but we expect some more parameters in the future.

You can get it from Chome Web Store by searching for “UrlQuery”.
