Site Owner Verified but showing untested - Norton Safe Web


I submitted another of my websites www.iafl-forensic.org for testing a month ago but nothing seems to have happened. Ownership has been verified, but it is still showing untested. 

I also do not understand what the designation "Scam Insight Risk Dispute" means. I hadn't noticed it before. Is there something else I need to do?

Thanks very much in advance for any help.



Re: Site Owner Verified but showing untested - Norton Safe Web


seems that iafl-forensic.org resolves to iafl.org/



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 in 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.
