    Hi,
    I would like to check my wordpress website for external links.
    I want to make sure my wordpress wasn't hacked or infected with unwnated links.

    Any free tool for that?

    Xenu Link Sleuth

    Checks all the links on your website, tells you which one's aren't working, gives you a list of every link and it's status.

    If you want to secure your wordpress check plug-ins:
    AntiVirus and Wordfence Security

    and I'm checking my site from time to time with
    Code:
    sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/

    If you put your homepage in xenu, set depth to about 10 and uncheck "check external links" it will report back on all links, including external, without checking if they are legitimate (ie not a 404, etc)

    if you choose to check external links, it'll start crawling those sites, which you don't need.

    Once it it has finished running you can export a tab seperated filed of all links and filter for external
