Gaming websites; Siteadvisor rating should be re-evaluated
Good afternoon everyone,
I have noticed when visiting quite a few gaming websites, SiteAdvisor gives a green rating, despite the fact that when I click to read the security report, it clearly states the site is known for phishing, malware and/or other scams.
This would seem to be a contradiction in the SiteAdvisor rating system which should be re-evaluated. How can a gaming website with known phishing/malware, or other security issues be given a green (safe) rating?

Good evening Hayton,
I've listed 4 gaming sites which SiteAdvisor displays a green icon, but the security report indicates security issues. (the website is shown in bold, within parentheses & the word DOT is substituted for the actual dot in the website name):
Website nameTYPE & # of issues stated in security report
There were also some sites which were stated to have "potentially illegal software." Please note, I did not access any of the above sites...I just stated in this post what was in the SiteAdvisor report for the site.
Hope this helps some Hayton and thanks very much for your response to my inquiry!
