Cobweb's picture information

Does anyone know what's going on with I have been using the website without any problems but yesterday and today I noticed that when I tried to log on McAfee SiteAdvisor had flagged it as a red site. But when I went to the McAfee website I couldn't get any info about why they had flagged it. All it says is "McAfee TrustedSource web reputation analysis found potential security risks with this site. Use with extreme caution." Which doesn't really tell me anything. I'm really all that worried since I haven't given them any personal information but I am curious about it. Does anyone have any info on it?

Automated detection

And you can see the current report at well, google and firefox are usually quite quick at blocking sites that have some sort of spyware or malware on them so I guess it's not that. You have already posed the most interesting question, how do mcafee come to this conclusion? (theres a paragraph on their site about a network of sensors) when i visited their review all of the "Automated Web Safety Testing Results" were greyed out - i guess no results to show! i'll yet you know if find more, there were a few good threads on microstockgroup about deposit photos (the site is down at the moment so I can't find a direct link to post here).
