    A lot of stuff is not detectable, but DoxDesk's Parasite Detector will detect just about anything that can be detected through Javascript.

    Has anyone hacked the script to count the number of visitors infected?

    Should be easy to modify it to call a popup, and count uniques to the popup url.

    Just hack it to include a .gif or .jpg that is named after the parasite then redirect all of them to a 1x1 gif/jpg (uses less bandwidth than 404 processing) and count # of times each gif/jpg is asked for.

    That's what I did.

    Awesome. What kind of numbers did you have? % of visitors with infection?

    Those types of numbers should be taken within the context that there are applications that can't be detected with the script and which applications those are.

    Sure, and also taken into context with size of test sample, site topic, etc. etc.

    But still, numbers are good - use what ya got.

    Your browser has not been checked for parasites, because it isnt Internet Explorer 5.5 (or later) for Windows.

    For technical reasons, the automatic-detection feature on this web page requires IEs ActiveX feature. (Other browsers and operating systems are not as vulnerable to parasites.)
    FireFox doesn't get checked, but 70%-80% of visitors to my sites use IE.
    I will look into this more a bit later.
    Thanks for the link
