Norton SafeSearch Issue

SafeSearch shows a site with a green checkmark. Hovering indicates it is safe, with no issues.

MalwareBytes shows it Blocked because of Fraud issues.

I have to wonder about this difference. Is it a matter of definition of what should be blocked?

Hi Ionic AIF,

Thanks for sharing this feedback.

Could you share the full address/URL of the site? We need the URL to investigate.

Torrey,

This is the best I can give you.

Since it is considered unsafe by MalwareBytes, it will not connect to the website, for me to copy the complete URL. I hope this helps you.

Hi Ionic AIF,

Looking at various sources like the ones linked by bjm_ the site looks clean. Norton Safe Web gives the site a Green rating, too.

Each of these tools has it's own database of site ratings, so they sometimes disagree.
