I did some testing with web control and i really like the green check marks in google result.
But as i was investigating a forensic case, where a client computer was infected by an encryption virus i found out something strange / dangerous.
I did a google search as this was the initial entry point to the infection. I saw a sepcific page that i knew it was dangerous.
But it was "checked green".
The reason for this was, that in the search result a "google translated" link was shown.
So the domain was "google translate" but the link would have brougt me directly to the infected page.
I guess there might be similar situations where the domain part is safe but the link is dangerous.
Maybe this should be marked at least with a "yellow" symbol to indicate that the customer is at least warned before clicking.
Can you please name the exact product you are using?
