You're right Jacee, it is just an ad. Cnet are not responsible for the software people advertise

They need to check the marketers that advertise on their website. If the program is malicious, then it needs to be taken off the site!

I agree that's what they should do, but they don't

Hi, panais.

It might have made more sense to see what the reports at WOT are about the site before challenging the warning. The site is on the malwaredomains blacklist and in checking MVPS Hosts, http://www.mvps.org/***********/hosts.txt it has the following entry:

www
.spywarecease.com #[FraudTool.Win32.SpywareCease.a]

Yes there are, panais, and each and every site is verified prior to any updates Mike makes to the Hosts File.

A lot more needs to be done by many companies.

There's a bit of irony for you!

Interesting. That proves what I thought months ago. Yahoo would set off my anti virus and firewall every now and then so I stopped using them. Seems like nobody wants to take responsibility. Imagine that!
