Not in webadvisor says no tested or grey icon. ask for a Trusted source review.

If this is from another Mcafee program the web advisor rating will not hurt

Re: Please remove my website from blacklist

Peacekeeper is correct : McAfee is not blocking this website. In fact it seems unable to find anything to report on and returns this message :

WebAdvisor no data.PNG

On the other hand, the website is blacklisted by another security company. Norton SafeWeb reports that it contains a phishing threat and accordingly gives the site an orange Caution rating. This is picked up by Sucuri (and probably other scanners) which overstates the warning level and makes the site appear to be dangerous (I don't think it is). So the problem lies not with McAfee but elsewhere.

See Report for microlinkcolleges.net | Norton Safe Web

and Sucuri SiteCheck - Free Website Malware Scanner (enter website URL for report).

Re: Please remove my website from blacklist

a client said that one of my pages gave him a virus warning and said it contained phishing content!. This page here: https://www.homesnet.us/groups/ahn-vendors/ gave him a virus warning, but I had scanned my site for malware and nothing came up and I do not have phishing content. Thanks!

The site report indeed says that it is malicious. https://www.siteadvisor.com/sitereport.html?url=https://www.homesnet.us/

Re: Please remove my website from blacklist

Thanks for that follow up, I am very confused why this is happening. I'm raising a dispute. I have scanned my site with other services and it came back clean. I used google and sucuri.

We see that McAfee WebAdvisor and Sucuri shows that it is safe to browse. Please let us know whether you still have this issue.
