@passmarked/malware1.0.4 • Public • Published
Passmarked is a suite of tests that can be run against any page/website to identify issues with parity to most online tools in one package.
The Terminal Client is intended for use by developers to integrate into their workflow/CI servers but also integrate into their own application that might need to test websites and provide realtime feedback.
All of the checks on Passmarked can be voted on importance and are open-sourced, to encourage community involvement in fixing and adding new rules. We are building the living Web Standard and love any contributions.
The module checks various services to see if a link has been tag as either
malware or hosting
unwanted software. All the links found from the internal site, along with links to external sites, are checked
This is done by checking a few services online by either a API call or through a primed cache. The services checked are:
If the module is run without prepping it will never identify any broken rules. Services not configured will not crash or cause a error to allow users to pick services they want to enable.
Following the sections to prep your environment so these checks can be run.
After prep the following rules will be produced if any issues are detected from enabled/configured services:
- page.unwanted - The page itself was tagged as hosting Unwanted Software
- page.malware - The page itself was tagged as hosting Malware
- page.phishing - The page itself was tagged as a Phishing attack
- link.internal.unwanted - Link on the page heading to the same origin was tagged as hosting Unwanted Software.
- link.internal.malware - Link on the page heading to the same origin was tagged as hosting Malware.
- link.internal.phishing - Link on the page heading to the same origin was tagged as a Phishing attack.
- link.external.unwanted - External url linked by page was tagged as hosting Unwanted Software
- link.external.malware - External url linked by page was tagged as hosting Malware
- link.external.phishing - External url linked by page was tagged as a Phishing Attack.
To protect again abuse there is a default upper limit of 50 per page. When running locally this limit can be upped to any number using the environment variable:
Note on a live service like passmarked.com it is best to override the cache from the payload and handle actual caching with services like Redis to reduce the amount of lookups against the API. The module is configured to save results with the following key structure in cache: passmarked:safebrowsing: containing a comma-delimated list of either
The module expects to find keys from the cache in the following format:
each of these keys would contain a comma delimited list specifying the type of issues on the link, namely
The online service at passmarked.com parses and loads the database in once a day to keep it fresh as new threats present themselves.
npm install -g passmarkedpassmarked --filter=malware example.com
The hosted version allows free runs from our homepage and the option to register a site to check in its entirety. Using the Passmarked npm module (or directly via the API) integrations are also possible to get running reports with all the rules in a matter of seconds.
All rules can be run locally using our main integration library. This requires installing the package and any dependencies that the code might have such as a specific version of Openmalware, see #dependencies
passmarked is installed:
npm install passmarkednpm install @passmarked/malware
After which the rules will be runnable using promises:
Alternatively, callbacks are also available:
The module does not require any dependencies to run but does require some work to prepare the environment before starting to provide actual results.
Rules also include a

Pull requests have a prerequisite of passing tests. If your contribution is accepted, it will be merged into
