Bad website rated Green

Post by DannyK » Sat Dec 29, 2007 4:42 pm

lyricsfreak.com sometimes leads to an adbrite page. I found this out when I went to visit it a few minutes ago and NOD32 came up with:
SWF/TrojanDownloader.Gida.A trojan

Please people, start rating this site red. Adbrite is rated red, but Lyricsfreak should be rated that too.

Your correct.

Well lyricsfreak.com has always been suspicious since long time now and I have even used it sometime back and had a lot of PC hang problems.

I have rated it in red.

Thanks for bringing this issue into consideration.

Regards,
Anand.

Mmm...
If you want to rate it, your computer will be infected.

Yea, I just rated it red. As long as you are using Firefox with adblock, you should be alright but not all people have that kind of setup and they shouldn't really have to either.

Leaving a comment is a new possibility

WOT version 3 and the scorecard gives you now a possibility to leave feedback without visiting a page. We have received requests on making it possible to give feedback without landing on a dangerous site, and now you can do it. I made an example by copying DannyK's finding:
http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/lyricsfreak.com

I see that Rob has also added his. You need to be a registered member to leave a comment, but anyone can view the scorecard pages. It is still imporatant to rate the site because comments do not directly influence the rating.

Heya

I don't see how you can change the rating on that page?
Clicking on the bars does not seem to do anything

You can only leave a comment, and the WOT plugin only lists mywot.com.

You can rate websites [url=https://www.mywot.com/support/howtorate t=_self]using the add-on[/url], which always shows you the rating for the current site.

Well rating malicious site

Post by lordpake » Thu Apr 17, 2008 3:59 pm

Well rating malicious site would require visiting said malicious site, thus exposing one's computer to possible danger. I can see the dilemma in that :)

Basically at current state WOT is not suited for rating sites that for example have exploits in place. Because, as Esa said previously, comments do not directly effect site's rating.
