:confused:My McAfee isn't happy with the new website*. In an interesting star link (we're linked to the Dove Valley Winery? - Geez...I used that stuff to clean brake parts) we're related to many of our site links - but they are all apparently OK. I'm not a computer nerd, much less an Internet expert...but someone who is should check this out. Thanks.

*McAfee TrustedSource web reputation analysis found potential security risks with this site. Use with extreme caution.

It's probably seeing illicit sites linking back to this one. I forgot the term for it but sites do this all the time.
I think it boosts their rank in search engines. There is nothing to be concerned about.

It's a false positive. It's the same sort of system that makes you take off your shoes at the airport, but allows known terrorists to get on planes.



So now we have to remove our underwear at airport security?

Am I to interpret the comments to mean that the average "Joe BMW" wears underwear? Ooooo...hmmm...ahhh.... Well, let me tell you about the legacy of the 60s.... "With pardon, sir: do you dress right, or dress left?"

If this goes past you, the location "Savile Row" will as well. Hint: close to Brands Hatch, Silverstone, and various other God-Blessed locations.

Now then, what this all has to do with website security...ooooo, hmmm, ahhh...hoping for the best, I guess.
