Softonic's security analysis also detected the threat and we have deactivated the download options for Orbit Downloader until further notice. We recommend that if you have Orbit Downloader installed, you should stop using it for the moment, and consider uninstalling the program until a safer version is made available. Major shock, popular Windows app Orbit Downloader has been identified as containing trojan-type software that allows users' PCs to be used in 'DDOS' attacks online. A worrying aspect of this story is how such a popular piece of software could have been operating in this way - apparently for a long time - and apparently none of the major PC security companies noticed it. Even now, only 1 out of 23 scans on Softonic identifies the threat (that's Kaspersky).

You can go to http://www.virustotal.com/ and ask it to scan and analyze the site for you.  It was last analyzed on Jan. 8, 2015, it has been analyzed 61 times beginning on Nov. 8, 2014, and it has been clean all 61 times.  If you want a brand new analysis then you can request one from virustotal.

As far as I know, herdProtect does not have any URL scanning capabilities (most AV software doesn't, and those that do usually isn't based on an on-demand scan like you can get from virustotal).
