Lycos, Norton Safe Web

Hi, Recently I was looking at the latest threats page on NSW. It listed this: http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?name=members.lycos.co.uk%2Ftrerws (link to reviews) However, it has 4200 threats on it, according to Norton. But, Lycos.com is a genuine search portal, so I believe it has been infecte...

More Websites

These websites appeared in Google/Ixquick results.

destroy-adware.com
kaitou-anti-uin.org
idifpro.com
allsoftware.org
yourpcprotection.com

Most of these sound bogus to me. One even advertises one of the malicious websites I have listed in the last post.

trilateralsystems.com/

Hi,

I was going to download Cache Out X, but it redirects to download mirror trilateralsystems.com/cacheoutx/.

Is this website safe? Currently, there are no ratings for this website.

Overture Ad Service

So, basically, you're saying that in Ixquick search results there might have been an infected ad which would lead to a phising website? That's probably true, but why would they rate Ixquick badly, why not just rate the phising website bad? Also, Yahoo! does use Overture, because GoodSearch.com power...

Ixquick

So, basically, it was flagged by PhishTank as phising because it had a phising link in their search results. That just doesn't seem very likely. Google has thousands of phising links and malware links, but they are not rated badly by sources because of it. Thanks though! As long as I know that Ixqui...

Safari Bookmarklet

Hi,

Thanks for replying!

You pretty much answered all of my questions, but I have one more. Will it block/warn me of bad websites, or will I have to manually view and open it on each website I go to?

Ixquick

Hi, I have started using the search engine Ixquick. However, I notice that this website uses many domains (us.ixquick.com, us2.ixquick.com, etc.). I keep stumbling upon real Ixquick domains that seem fine to me that seem to be rated dangerous for some reason. This is one: s2-us2.ixquick.com/ I see n...

Safari Bookmarklet

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone would recommend the Safari/Opera Bookmarklet. Personally, I like Safari better than Firefox, especially in speed, but when researching security or doing normal browsing, I'd use Firefox, because I have WOT. However, I know a bookmarklet is available for Safari, but...

iMunizator

Thank you for your comment, logicman. Also, thanks for posting it on SiteAdvisor, too. I'm glad more people know about this website and know that it is dangerous. Surprisingly, I'm seeing the same people on WOT in SiteAdvsior. Even some Norton Safe Web people in SiteAdvisor. Also, in a minute, imuni...
