I cick at red circle, but WOT give me no details about why the site is unsafe
Does it show no categories? If that's the case WOT doesn't have enough confidence in rated categories to display them.

Spammed Sites Receiving Green Rating

There is a current issue with WOT's AI rating where spammy sites continuously get positive ratings. This has been an issue ever since WOT started using its AI to rate sites, and it is really annoying for anyone who uses the ratings as a measure of whether or not to click on a website. To get these spammy websites to show up, just type random keywords on Google.

A lot of these websites have no legitimate content, and were made just for spam, so there's no point in giving these sites a green rating.

I suspect they put Cloudflare in the trusted hosts of their "AI" despite the amount of garbage that service spews. I sampled a few of those sites, Cloudflare.
