An obvious Spam web site

Post by billyspilly » Sun Apr 24, 2011 1:48 am

I was surfing google images - term: Gary Oldman family
The 6th or 7th picture over yielded a spam virus j-script "your windows machine is infected blah blah..." (I'm on a Linux machine...That message is a laugh)

The actual link pointed to is a distant sub-url of "www.accidentalsexiness.com" in what appears to be a word press blog - pointing to a questionable site "falco.co.nz" that WOT fails miserably to identify in my google search. So my questions:

(1)
Why in the original google search does WOT fail miserably to identify the image as questionable...when the reference to falco.co.nz is blatant (a link appears in the search) even while a direct google of falco.co.nz directly DOES yield a questionable result?

(2)
Looks to me as though if a ton of people have rated this "accidentalsexiness" site green...my rating won't make much difference!! Is there any way to report a very obvious malware or bare minimum scam attempt for review?

The full link for reference in this question is:
(accidentalsexiness points to falco)

The simple search under Google images was - Gary Oldman family

@ billyspilly,

DO NOT make that link live. Edit your post and substitute hxxp for http.

WARNING to novices: This live link leads to the fake scan and download of the fake scanner. DO NOT click on it!
