Unsafe website?
« on: October 21, 2010, 07:54:23 pm »
I don't quite know what to say here... McAfee just sprayed this message in my face: "McAfee TrustedSource web reputation analysis found potential security risks with this site. Use with extreme caution. (SITEID: http://www.furryteens.org/forum/index.php)"

Any ideas?

[EDIT: Not that McAfee is the smartest AntiVirus program... But still.]

Unfortunately, I have no way of investigating exactly why they flagged this site, but they had no reason to do so.  The only thing I can think of is that some of our users have had viruses in the past that hijacked their DNS queries and pointed this site to a malicious server.  And since McAfee is retarded, it wouldn't surprise me if they flagged it when it wasn't even pointing to the right server.

I appreciate you bringing it to my attention, and I'm going to investigate this further.  In the meantime, if you have some way of flagging it as a misreported URL, I'd appreciate you doing so.

I have the same program installed, when I go to the site report this is what it says:




Not sure if that's any help at all, but I figured I'd throw that out there.

Yeah, it shows the exact same thing for me also. Unfortunately I can't flag it as a misreported site because I'm not staff or owner, but I just thought I would pop that out there,.
