McAfee may be scaring off prospects

McAfee Siteadvisor flags an innocent siteFurther to my recent post on McAfee black listing a site because it happened to be on the same IP address as a ‘naughty site’, I’ve bumped into yet another McAfee SiteAdvisor case.

This time SiteAdvisor is flagging a website as malicious in search result at right – not an enticing look for prospective clients and clearly a sales lead killer.

The site in question is not currently hacked although it has had a checkered past and was hacked about 6 months ago but promptly resolved.

My concern on behalf of the business owner is that after submitting a request to McAfee to have this status updated is their reputation to to be sluggish on responses
