Free ImmuniWeb Tool Allows Organizations to Check Dark Web Exposure

Web security company ImmuniWeb this week announced a free tool that allows businesses and government organizations to check their dark web exposure.

Web security company ImmuniWeb this week announced a free tool that allows businesses and government organizations to check their dark web exposure.

Integrated into ImmuniWeb’s Domain Security Test, the new feature provides organizations of all types with the option to check their current exposure by simply entering their main website URL.

ImmuniWeb, which says it is serving an average of 50,000 free tests daily, is keeping an eye on hacking forums and underground marketplaces, as well as dedicated IRC channels and Telegram chats, paste websites and other locations on the deep, dark, and surface web where stolen data is offered, traded, or advertised.

Such data frequently includes stolen login credentials from breached websites, servers and SaaS platforms, and other data leaks.

To those using the free service, the company provides results that include an overall quantity, risk score and classification of data, without displaying logins or passwords. Further information on incidents is available only upon identity verification.

ImmuniWeb’s free Community Edition service also helps organizations identify outdated and unsecure software on their websites; check compliance with GDPR and PCI DSS requirements; detect security vulnerabilities, and encryption and privacy issues in mobile apps; and ensure that web and email servers are properly encrypting traffic and complying with requirements.

“Organizations of all sizes are incrementally exposed to perilous cyber threats stemming from the silent proliferation of their data on the Dark Web. When a trusted third-party is compromised, it is virtually impossible to quickly detect and thus mitigate the incident. Further spread of outsourcing and a shift towards cloud and SaaS-based solutions gradually exacerbates the risk,” Ilia Kolochenko, CEO & founder of ImmuniWeb, commented.
