Some Norton Safeweb problems.

Some website is not the same site.
For example:


[Removed links]

(I had tried serveral times. The three auto-link I can't change. If you worry, please not click.)

They just the same in the part "tn.edu.tw", but they are clean.

But Norton Safeweb only detected the "tn.edu.tw", so you can see this Safeweb result.
http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=http:%2F%2Fwww.tn.edu.tw%2F
It's have 1423 threats, but not from the site that I just make an example.

But if I go to the clean site, Norton Safeweb still warn (red).
So I think maybe Safeweb can change the data.

This is just an example, can Norton Safeweb change the data to get some URL?


Another example is blogspot.com.
Norton Safeweb onlt detected the part  "blogspot.com."
But they are not the same site.
EX:
googleblog.blogspot.com
googlejapan.blogspot.com

Those site are safe, you can see the Safeweb result, The threats are not from those site.
The threats from another site, but it have some part the same URL as those site, so Norton Safeweb detected them.
That's what I want to say.
And I not direct link the URL, I gave Safeweb results.

Re: Some Norton Safeweb problems.

Pikachu is correct, the links you posted are NOT safe and are invoking Safe Web warning messages on my computer.

Re: Some Norton Safeweb problems.

Hello Phil_D,

Indeed, the site is not safe. If you take a look at the safeweb link he gave, it says that the site has a total threats of 1432. That's a pretty large number.

And to ONE,

It doesn't matter if a "part" of a site is not infected and some other parts are. If a site is infected, it is infected. It's not safe to visit infected sites.

Please understand what I want to say.
The threats are not NOT from the site I make example, the threats are from another site, but Norton Safeweb still detected them, that's the problem I want to say.
(How can one site have 1423 threats? That's the problem.)
And I had tried serveral times that I can't remove auto-link, I need the example to explain the problem of safeweb.

How can explain  the bug without example?

That's not "a" site.
Those are not "only one" site, they are different site just with some URL the same.
How can "one" site infected so much virus? Please think it.

Re: Some Norton Safeweb problems.

Yes Phil_D, shannons is quick on removing the links. =)

And to ONE,

That site is not safe, period.

Can someone believe "only one site" infected "1423" virus?

I have said, it's "NOT" only one site.
They are different site, but Norton Safeweb think they are one site.

Is this site a host server? So a service where you can buy or get free some storage for your webpage? If it is so, than it can be dangerous! These services usually are built on many servers, and if only one folder (so one webpage) is infected with something, it can infect the whole HDD. And if the servers are connected to each other (which is possible again, but not necessary) they can infect each other too.

So if that's the case, than please be careful with this site, it is not so funny to clear a threat out of the PC.....

No, it's the server from government to make each school build their own site.
But most school site are safe, Norton Safeweb still warn coz some are infected.
I think Safeweb should give each school site different result is better.

Re: Some Norton Safeweb problems.

But are these sites stored on the same server(s)?
If yes, it is possible they can infect each other, and then the warning is reasonable.
If no, so they are on seperated servers, then there's no way one can infect the others, so you can use the site(s), and just ignore SafeWeb. Later a Symantec Employee, who works by the SafeWeb team can read this topic, and then (s)he can try to solve the issue to seperate the subpages from the main IP. Until then you can only turn off SafeWeb for not getting the warning. (I'm not recommending this...)Message Edited by PapauZ on 06-27-2009 05:41 PM

Every shcool build their own site by themselves.
So it's not infected eaxh other.
Anyway, I just want Safeweb can give every different site different rank.

Re: Some Norton Safeweb problems.

Hello ONE,

The site you mentioned is listed as having direct links to malicious locations.

Using a test computer, I visited these locations and NIS 2009 immediately detected and blocked "Trojan. Maliframe ..."

I did not have to click on anything for this threat to attempt the attack. This is known as a Drive-By Download which is also listed on the Norton Safe Web page for this site.

Even if you think the threats are not on this site, the site is a direct portal to potentially dangerous content - something that I definitely want to be aware of.

I would suggest that the owner of the site, check the content and related links for threats and then submit a request for re-evaluation to Norton Safe Web.

The three removed site I had used my NIS 2009 to visit, it's safe.
The danger site are as Norton Safeweb warn, but not those three site.

And I didn't ask anyone to click those URL. I just want to make an example.
Why you click them and ask to remove?
And it's not the problem what I want to say. I don't want to talk about this again.

I just want Safeweb can give each different site different rank.

EX: xxx.blogspot.com, xxx.spaces.live.com...
I had said it in my last reply.

These are again not the best examples, because they use the same serverfarm, and every machine can infect the others....

1) Not correct. The sites are currently rated as unsafe.

2) I tested them and requested removal for the safety of the other forum members.

3) The site owner must contact Norton Safe Web to have the rating changed.

I didn't ask anyone to click those site, the URL are just for example, and my NIS 2009 detect nothing on the three site, they are safe.
And they are not the same site the same owner.

PLEASE NOT REPLY THE SAME THING IN THIS SUBJECT, THANK YOU.

I have to let you know I am angry now because I don't like somebody laugh at my problem each other in my subject.

(The previous reply in previous page is what I said.)

Especially he even don't understand what the problem is.

Re: Some Norton Safeweb problems.

I will honor your request and make this my last post on the issue, but I cannot let this go unanswered.

It is important for me to tell you that I was not laughing at you. I respect every member on these forums and would never laugh at anyone here.

I am sorry that you were angered by my remarks and I can assure you that it was not my intention.

Best Wishes

...Anyway, nobody won't read the real problem of Safeweb now, because the three site link discuss too much...

...I don't want to make a new subject to report the real problem again...
