Re: Norton vs asus

@Jerrycanada: please try updating your Norton product, and adding Asus.com as an exception.

And this post may require Norton Safe Web Team's attention. Meantime, Asus site does not include Symantec SSL nor Symantec Trust Seal at the time of commenting.

Re: Norton vs asus

I have brought this thread to the attention of the Safeweb Team. Hopefully they will post their comment.

P.S.  Strange.... as per bjm_'s above post the site is unsafe for Sucuri but VirusTotal shows all negative results, Sucuri included....

Rainbow_2: P.S.  Strange.... as per bjm_'s above post the site is unsafe for Sucuri but VirusTotal shows all negative results, Sucuri included.... 

Sucuri is supposedly near real-time.  VT is historical.  Sucuri is historical reporting Blacklists e.g., SafeWeb because SafeWeb is historical.  

VirusTotal acts simply as an information aggregator, presenting antivirus results, file characterization tool outputs, URL scanning engine results, etc. VirusTotal is not responsible for false positives generated by any of the resources it uses, false positive issues should be addressed directly with the company or individual behind the product under consideration.
Very often URL scanners and antivirus engines are independent solutions even though they may belong to the same company, hence, detecting a given URL as malicious does not necessarily mean that the file located at such URL will also be detected, and vice-versa.
Moreover, sometimes the URL might be malicious (e.g. phishing site) but the downloaded file (HTML of the phishing site) may not necessarily be a theat for your computer. Other times, the downloaded file might indeed be flagged by the antivirus signatures but the corresponding URL scanner might still have no knowledge that a given URL is distributing such file.

SafeWeb acts as an information aggregator too.
