Matt Cutts posted an entry on his blog yesterday about Malware; he also included what I thought was a fairly useful tool for finding out how Google sees a page listed as containing malware:

http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=http://example.com

(where of course example.com is the site you want to look up)

It gives you all kinds of fun and useful information, specially if you've been infected!

This was actually released back in May [webmasterworld.com], but I guess these kinds of tools have become somewhat more prominent following the AVG fiasco ;)

If the initially posted link is supposed to be for looking up example.com, why do we see comments in the provided link for something else?

The link provided results in a google error page. I think the results for example.com (omitting the comments) reflect the fun and useful information:

What is the current listing status for example.com/?

This site is not listed as suspicious.

What happened when Google visited this site?

Of the 48 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent.

... and more

The link above performed oddly because links in our threads go through a redirect script. So I de-linked the url - if you copy and paste the url into your browser's location bar you will see the example.com results as intended.
