Strange avs4you.com anomaly

Post by mikeopacic » Sun Feb 08, 2009 9:11 pm

Hi,

I recently registered a product with the people who run the web site http://www.avs4you.com which WOT shows as safe (score of almost 90 on average). However the site's associated support page (linked to from the main site) http://support.avs4you.com/Support.aspx is classed by WOT as dangerous & blocked accordingly. I've checked in WOT's details for the support page & it shows as 22 on average & well into the red - but there are no supporting comments to suggest why it is rated that way.

SiteAdvisor shows http://www.avs4you.com and downloads from it as clean (green).

Can this rating really be an accurate reflection of the support page's safety? I would love to know what is dangerous about it - can anyone tell me why it is considered dangerous?

Cheers

Mike

Back to Green

The rating has already been reversed back to green. This isn't yet reflected in the scorecard, however, because the website has not yet been synchronized with the ratings database. Perhaps a dangerous link set if off?
It's part of the same well known parent domain avs4you.com, however, and its the same owner, so no danger was purposely intended. It may have been a false positive.
Either way, the rating is now green, so as far as I can tell, it is currently safe.

You can report incorrect ratings to the WOT staff, at:http://www.mywot.com/en/support/feedback/abuse
A big thank you to all the WOT staff

Hi wehaveitall,

Yes it's back to green and no longer blocked by WOT now as you say - thanks for the update.

Cheers

one small problem that I could find.
The copyright (c) text extends past the footer container.
If anyone know who the webDev is, maybe they ought to include a [br /] before the copyright notice.

peace,
