Verifying virus on website

Is there tool/website that I can use where I can plug in a URL and determine if the website that I entered has a virus?

I created a website on Wix, and on two separate occassions, someone mentioned my website has a virus. Wix has yet to respond.

Any thoughts?

ETA: I've used a couple services that I found through a simple Google search that yielded "clean" results. That said, since two different people mentioned the virus on my website I have a bit of scepticism about the free website checks that surface via Google search.

There are a number of services that will scan webpages...but if you really want an accurate answer, there's no scanner out there that will really do the job. If you ping me the URL, I can check it out for you.

A few resources for basic checking

https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/
https://app.webinspector.com/

and...of course, VirusTotal. Try looking up both the URL and the bare domain. Click the "relations" tab, scroll down a bit, and you'll see 'detected URLs' and 'communicating files' and 'downloaded files.' Those can all tell you a lot about the domain/url. In the screenshots below, the domain in question was specifically created as part of the delivery infrastructure for the Ursniff banking trojan. The "communicating file" is the malicious document that downloads the executable payload from the domain in question.

Edit: my apologies for not scaling the images down. Didn't realize they were friggin' huge until after I posted.

Thanks for those. Filed for future use.

Thank you - nothing detected.

Wix responded and said they couldn't find anything either. Maybe one of the visitor's Bitdefender or some other virus detector threw up a warning that the reader misinterpreted.

Most likely the client is infected. It’s rarely the site.
