RE: Firefox trying to disable APP.

There's the execution vulnerability, but it's also that since 2015 MyWOT has sold whole URLs we've visited to third parties, contravening their own published privacy policy. I've compared the terms at https://www.mywot.com/en/forum/73570-web-of-trust-20170120-and-lower-has-been-blocked-for-your-prot...

RE: add-on privacy and Web of Trust blocked by FF

I'm very sad and disappointed that Mozilla have had to block the add-on: hxxps://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1314332#c9. It was a convenient way to look up and contribute domain ratings, but appears to have become a major privacy risk since 2015.This is a summary of how data was shared and ...

RE: freundbild.com

My low rating was from March 2012, when this was one of several sites abused for phishing for Co-operative bank details (URL was hxxp://www.freundbild.com/coo/) . I've deleted my rating. Please remember to keep your site secure !

RE: medinafarm.ru


Добрый день. Действительно мошеннический контент был загружен через Уязвимость в Joomla. Та база была полностью удалена и сайт был сделан заново с нуля на другом программном обеспечении.


Thanks for reply. I will revise my rating accordingly.

RE: medinafarm.ru

Phishing had been seen hosted on the site in August. It appears fraudulent content was uploaded through a vulnerability in Joomla (see eg http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.security.phishings/62863 ).

What has been done to make the site software secure?

RE: travelsmtp.com

I can't see any current problem but would think from your description that the most likely reason for a WOT warning was that your service was abused at some point in the past to send spam. Do you use other domains to send from and what practical anti-abuse measures are in place? Or users might have ...

Phishing site with good reputation.

Obviously phishy subdomain, used for webmail phishing, but scoring green. https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/webmailacountverificationn.jimdo.com How can I tell if this is solely from inheritance, or some abusive scores? Or has something else gone wrong? I've suggested improvements to the inheritanc...

RE: Why my profile rating is not increasing? [SOLVED]

Just to say that in my case I believe the score started incrementing again without reinstalling the toolbar, although I am rating regularly from more than one browser which makes it difficult to be sure. It seems that the score gets stuck at certain values (not just because of the daily updates, but...
