"Trusted Sources" are (were, until they were lost) a separate feature relying on evaluations by external Trusted vendors (Sources) such as VirusTotal, hpHosts, PhishTank, SpamHaus, Sucuri, and similar. Such evaluations were incorporated into WoT's trust scores to complement members' ratings. Thus some domain, already cited by VirusTotal for malware, would automatically have a low trust score at WoT even though no WoT members had yet rated it - thus providing greater protection of the WoT-using public. This is what is (was) meant by WoT's advertising that its ratings derive from human and machine assessments.
Hey Myxt,
Thanks for bringing up this important subject and sharing it with the WOT community.
Apparently there has been a slight misunderstanding - The evaluations (and blacklists) of ‘Trust Sources’ are still incorporated and taken into consideration in the ‘trust score’ WOT grants to any website, alongside members’ ratings.
In that aspect - nothing has changed.
As part of our product’s RoadMap, we will reinstate the Trust Sources display and enable the community to see which source has blacklisted any website in question.

OK, this evaluation has been on record since 2020/01/18

so it seems to me that, by now, it should have influenced this
