Operating Principles

The Dr.Web URL Checker component is used by other components in order to check URLs for belonging to unwanted or potentially dangerous categories.

The check can be performed either by using specialized link bases or by using the Dr.Web CloudD service. To use the Dr.Web CloudD service, perform the following command:

$ drweb-ctl cfset Root.UseCloud Yes

The Dr.Web URL Checker cannot be launched by the user. It is launched by the Dr.Web ConfigD configuration management daemon upon request of other components.
