Report a Scam Insight False Positive


Re: Scam Insight: Personal Information Risk

Scam Insight mostly works on heuristic based detection [on the fly detection with no database], it is implemented on Norton toolbar.

It make use of inputs like

1. Does it ask for personal information like credit card, SSN, login information, 

2. How new this site is,

3. How many users visited it till now,

4. Suspicious whois info

5. Does it have any suspicious scam keywords

Since Scam Insight works on client side and it is on the fly detection, on fairly new sites, it may happen that site is rated as Untested in SafeWeb.

Some users see it and others don't 

This issues might be because some users/system/browser might have disable Norton toolbar or Scam Insight might have difficulty in collecting above mentioned details.

Note: Usually if websites get more users, scam insight starts trusting this site and reclassifies it as safe.
