Malware links

I like testing my security, I have Sophos Intercept X for Android Security, and I have NextDNS for Web filtering. Are these links harmful to Android devices or just Windows machines? 

I'm assuming the malware will be .exe or similar type malware extensions that would only be harmful to Windows.

  • Hi Mike,

    Thanks for reaching out to the Sophos Community Forum.

    When checking the links within the GitHub repository though our website classification tools, I could see that all of them returned either a malicious category or other corresponding site classification based on the ones listed here.

    Intercept X Mobile will use the same website verification functionality to permit/deny website access as our Endpoint Protection products. If you have "Web Filtering" enabled in the app, then you should expect similar results based on how you configure this.  

    If you'd like to find out if the sites are harmful to Android devices, you would need a copy of the payload that's delivered by the site so that Sophos Labs can analyze it at a deeper level, though I don't believe each of the sites will behave the same in trying to download files.
