: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.

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.
