How secure are your web page’s from exploits? This all depends who you’re asking. If you are asking the host company than more than likely they have security in place to block potential holes that can lead to server attacks. If you are asking the owner of a website, they will, in most cases say their website is free of Malware.
Web pages that contain exploits often use a series of redirects and obfuscated code to make it more difficult for somebody to follow. This type of exploit is hidden from the user, but it resides in the HTML code within a web page.
There’s an effective way to check if your website or blog contains Malware by downloading Malzilla.
