Cloud Security Scanner allows you to create scan tasks for detecting content risks. This helps you detect risks in your website content, such as spams and website defacement. This topic describes how to create content scan tasks and query scan results.

Background information

Content scan tasks can scan text and images that contain adult content, terrorism, advertisements, illicit content, profanity, and spams.
