Web-based malware is becoming a more serious security issue every day as web services become a bigger part of the Internet. The cost of detecting malware based on web page crawling increases exponentially the more pages beneath the main page are scanned. In this paper, we propose a dynamic method to detect malware when a user connects to a web page infected by malware. Then, we also devise a server-based system which consists of the proposed method and a server which maintains lists of web sites that contain malware. By giving these tools to many distributed web browser users, all those users get to participate in malicious web site detection and feedback. As a result, we can dynamically detect a lower link level of web sites in a distributed manner.
