Is WinWorld Blacklisted?
Just today when I went onto WinWorld, I got a message from McAfee SiteAdvisor saying "https://winworldpc.com may be risky to visit", and that they have detected exhibited risky behaviors on the site.
I found proof about this on the site report:
Here’s why winworldpc.com/home could be risky
We scanned this site and found that it’s not as secure as it should be. Please click with caution.
About this site
According to the message, it said that PUPs stands for "Potentially Unwanted Programs".
Here's what the message said:
Web pages that contain Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs). PUPs are often made for a beneficial purpose but they alter the security of a computer or the computer's user privacy. Computer users who are concerned about security or privacy might want to be informed about this software, and in some cases, they might want to remove this software from their computers.
So yeah, that's what I have encountered while trying to go on WinWorld. But then I just clicked "Accept the risk", because WinWorld is a website that I trust. Now, this might be a hoax because I did hear that McAfee SiteAdvisor (AKA McAfee WebAdvisor) has been criticized for incorrectly flagging websites with warning messages. So what I'm asking this, has this happened to anyone else on this site, or was it just me? Was it because of the site's downloads? I doubt that because I know WinWorld's downloads are safe.
