I have been using Firetrust's Benign as part of my email filtering system and find it excellent and have used MailWasher in the past (although I don't use it any more). Their software is well written and well supported. Now they have a new product ...

Sitehound Looks interesting ... here is the email explaining (note there is a 30% discount link in the following for the enhanced version):

SiteHound toolbar

SiteHound 1.4.1 SiteHound®

With up-to-the-minute global information sourced from users and security experts, SiteHound is your first line of defense against internet threats including phishing, scams, spyware, adware, security risks and viruses from rogue websites.

So, click here to download the new version of SiteHound today!

Download now!

If you're already running SiteHound, you don't need to uninstall your existing version. Just install the new version over the top, and SiteHound will go on protecting you, day after day.

We've improved SiteHound by adding :

    * Improvements to site blocking. Sitehound now blocks sites that have been caught spamming ;
    * and a few miscellaneous bug fixes.

Even better, if you upgrade to the enhanced version of SiteHound for the great introductory price of only US$19.95*, you'll have access to these special features :

    * Automatic daily updates to the SiteHound database of rogue sites
    * Comprehensive maps showing you where the website you're visiting is hosted and who owns it

I should point out there is also a free version, and it is for Internet Explorer users, although a Firefox version is in the pipeline according to the website. I haven't tried it yet so I don't know if it shows up in IE based browsers such as Maxthon.

Seems to work well. The difference between the free and paid versions is the amount of detail given on sites.

Seems quite an effective way to avoid suspect sites and phishing sites. Here are a couple of screen shots for the free version:
