McAfee has abandoned SiteAdvisor

How many sites have gone un-rated?

RE: McAfee has abandoned SiteAdvisor

Not sure what you mean here as that site has already been rated, but probably a while ago and I see that perhaps it should be re-rated. That doesn't happen overnight but you can help the process by becoming a reviewer: http://www.siteadvisor.com/analysis/reviewers/

You can also give feedback to the SiteAdvisor team yourself: http://www.siteadvisor.com/feedback.html

Please don't post links that may cause harm, thanks.

I asked for a review in February and ColoradoChris asked for a review in March and I checked back due to some forum spam I saw and it still has a Good rating in spite of repeated Meds spamming of forums.

RE: McAfee has abandoned SiteAdvisor

Oh well then all I can say is they must be severely backlogged, which certainly doesn't surprise me one little bit. Thanks for trying anyway.

Backlogged?

Do they have anyone reviewing the SiteAdvisor feedback?

Another example requesting a review on 09/05/2007-08:00:34 AM by dulux:
http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/larshederer.homepage.t-online.de

NTREGOPT and ERUNT are used by millions of users without a problem but SiteAdvisor insists that it is a malicious site!

RE: McAfee has abandoned SiteAdvisor

Well it's up to the owner of that website to appeal the finding. I do know that it takes from 4 - 8 weeks to get a review done again as it has to be done manually.

I realise that is far too long, and we have complained bitterly about it. Don't forget we are just users like yourselves so we have problems too.

The powers that be are aware of the shortcomings as we give them a list every Monday when we have a conference call.

RE: McAfee has abandoned SiteAdvisor

P.S. the original header is off base. McAfee certainly hasn't abandoned SiteAdvisor, after all it just bought it from it's creators!

The 2009 products have been occupying a large percentage of peoples' times so site reviews probably have been slow as a result.

I can appreciate that.

I sure hope that they are they are devoting some time to the antivirus2008 trojans infections as they are so prolific on the Internet today and they are a bit hard to get rid of as I helped my friend's son get rid of one a few days ago.

I have been reading that antivirus2009 trojan is even worse.

unfortunately its not generic and there are so many ways and random files they create making it difficult
but the common exploit they utilise has been seen to be the browser and old version of JAVA on the computer

Yeah, according to SiteAdvisor, right? Jesus, this is possibly the most ridiculous thing I never even thought I would see on this forum. Are mods really trying to defend this ridiculous product?

No, they don't reply within 4-8 weeks. I've been waiting well over twice that for my site's rating to be corrected. There are hundreds of thousands of sites that McAfee either hasn't rated (even based on user feedback, which should be automatic), or is rating incorrectly. The whole concept of "weighted reviews" is greatly flawed as well... I have several users of my site leaving positive reviews , but none were really active SiteAdvisor members until this issue came up. So they didn't help the rating one bit. There's nothing I can change on my site either, except maybe block SiteAdvisor itself from downloading other peoples' files.

Worst of all, McAfee doesn't even have a legitimate address on their "contact us" page. It just bounces back and isn't even valid according to USPS. McAfee abandoned SiteAdvisor... is there any question about it? But then again, is McAfee really doing anything to protect peoples' computers anyway?
