SiteAdvisor and ThePlanet Must Not Care

There were several hits my blog post about SiteAdvisor from Network Associates, that owns McAfee SiteAdvisor, yet nothing changed. Wouldn't you assume that after reading my posts about SiteAdvisor Green Lighting sites with the worms in them that someone would at least change the site status to protect people.

Nope.

Funny, Symantec's Norton AntiVirus agrees with me that the site has a worm, but SiteAdvisor says you're good to visit.



Maybe they don't think it's a threat because McAfee AV products don't detect this worm?

Who knows, I'll stick with Norton AV.

Then again, we have ThePlanet that hosts these sites, and they were notified 6 days ago that this problem existed on 4 of their servers and these sites are still online and functional.

I guess nobody cares about security these days.

Norton bites (slow, unstable, expensive). McAfee, as you've noticed, also bites (poor detection). Use AVG, Kaspersky, Avast!, or NOD32.

Norton just came with the machine and I'm lazy, what can I say. When I reloaded my travel laptop I did install AVG which seems to work just fine.

Norton has given false alarms to me before.

It's not a false alarm, but thanks for playing.
