This is something that the Web Anti-Virus component of Kaspersky Security for Mac can help with, analyzing every web page you visit and every file you encounter online. Should anything suspicious be detected, access to the site or file will be blocked.
This works in conjunction with the URL scanner which checks for phishing web sites. There is also a handy Parental Controls component that can be used to place restrictions on how your computer is used.
