Bad site, no warning from WSA!


Userlevel 4
That first item is a link to a site where your computer stars beeping claiming to be from MS warning of an intrusion on your PC with a number to call.  You can’t close, all you can do is a Crl/Alt Del and kill it. WebRoot, why doesn’t this site have a red warning on it???

It doesn't appear all the time, next time I'll use the link.

It popped up again with a search so I copied it, tried it verify it again and submitted it.  It was given a score of 81 with a green check mark!  Seriously?

 

If anyone cares to try it themselves, here it is: ~snip Removed bad link and I have reported it to Webroot snip~

Well, just tried the link that you just posted and...absolutely no problem accessing the site/no sign of any warning or impediment to access.

 

Not really sure what is the matter other than I suspect that it is related to something with your specific system and/or configuration.

 

I would advise Opening a Support Ticket, as the best way to get to the bottoim of what is causing this.

 

Regards, Baldrick

I got it with Firefox!

 



 

Had to kill the page with Task Manager!

Good, I submitted a support ticket on it.

 

Did one of guys remove my link posted above to keep others from trying it?  Which is good, just asking.

Not for me!  Is there a way to force WRSA to update?

 

I found it, shows me current v9.0.15.40

 

Ah!  Now it blocked it.

FWIW ~ have you considered an AdBlocker to block Ad stores.ebay

Ads aren't the point here, a dangerous site posing as an ad is.

I hear ya'. 

and AdBlocker blocks user from seeing Ad in search results. 

Why not filter out dangerous anyway you can?

Just me.

YMMV

I added the AdBlocker extension but it still showed up.  I wouldn't think it needs a reboot.  It's gone now but that's normal as it doesn't show up on every search for some reason.

FWIW ~ Adguard AdBlocker browser extension with four Adguard filters.   Firefox 52.0.1
