How can I remove a site from McAfee "dangerous" list?

Jump to solution

My rowing club is - for some reason - marked as yellow, and hence by default blocked by McAfee. There are - to the best of my knowledge - nothing dangerous about that site.

Where can I

1) remove the site from the "dangerous list"?

2) Get more information about why McAfee thinks it's a horrible dangerous site - We are more than willing to change things if our site leads to some kind of alerts

3) why doesn't McAfee leave a short description of the danger - it could even teach their users to be a little more aware of different threats

4) Why doesn't McAfee leave a button "I think this is a mistake", and could collect information about potential false positive in that way?

(if you want to see for yourself, have a look at Amager Ro- og Kajakklub, Islands Brygge, København - but be aware! It can be life threatening! Don't tell me you haven't been warned!)

I would love some feedback...

Labelled Medium Risk by WebAdvisor but I think the above picture indicates you may be using Enterprise products.

Can you advise on that please?

You might be absolutely right. I'm not using McAfee myself. I got the screen dump from a friend.

I'm just involved in the "dangerous" domain (which is a little rowing club in Denmark), and don't want people to be frightened by a false positive from McAfee.

​,

                   During the interim, you may try following these Guidelines/Instructions to help have your Site Re-evaluated/Reviewed. Creating a ticket with 'TrustedSource' being the most expedient.
