Menardconnect.com, SiteAdvisor and a User Review



I got some notification that SiteAdvisor, Mcafee’s website safety reporting services have a rating for my blog.

Ok the rating for menardconnect.com is check and green, which means that this site is safe to browse.

SiteAdvisor also noted that I have online affiliation with Nuffnang PH

which I do not and will not deny (it is in my disclosure page).

But the shocking part is the user review part: a user/reviewer of Siteadvisor classified my site as Adware, Spyware and Virus

I don’t know how to react.

Maybe the reviewer browsed some of my few Tech and Virus-related post (maybe my malware for breakfast post 🙂 )

What’s next for me?

Although Mcafee Siteadvisor is safe and fine, I am worried why a user/reviewer rated me as adware, spyware or virus- related site. FYI, as part of the Antivirus and Security Researchers community, I do know the basic do’s and don’ts on viruses and malware. I checked my site “manually” and by using other online tools and confirm all is a-OK.

So I believe the best option for me is to register in SiteAdvisor as blog owner/webmaster and comment inquire about this user’s rating via official channels. Hope all turns out well, but if all else fail… maybe there are still the unofficial channels 🙂

To the reviewer:
I hope the rating of my blog is just some minor oversight.
I encourage you to view my about page and my disclosure page so that you will know my official stand on adware, spyware, viruses and other related issues. I may have lapses and I am not perfect but all seems fine and a-OK from my end, and I would appreciate it if you can point to me why you classified my blog with that rating. You can leave a note via my contact page or leave some comments at the end this post.

To my readers:
You can visit the Mcafee SiteAdvisor site by going to

http://www.siteadvisor.com/

Just cut and paste the quoted text above on your browser. You can input menardconnect.com (or your site or any other site) in the “View a site report” on the right sidebar and there you have it the Mcafee SiteAdvisor Rating for the site that you have inputted.

Will try to collect and post some other related website safety/rating/sites from Antivirus/IT Security Vendors (and possibly some independent ones too) and other website safety related sites and tips soon.
