orange shield on benyehuda
« on: December 22, 2020, 03:56:27 PM »
I find the checkmarks on websites very useful and always heed them. However, there is one particular website that consistently has an orange shield (untrustworthy) and that I would need to browse - It's an innocuous website with texts, but I guess they have antiquated software or sth (I'm not technically savvy). I tried to reach them about the issue but they never responded. The other antivirus programs seem to recognize no issues with this site, however I'm reluctant to use it because of the Avast warning.
Can you check if that site is really risky to use (just browsing, without introducing any credit card no's or personal info) and what the issue is? Maybe if I contacted them with some real info they'd do sth about it. It's a culturally important website (a corpus of online Hebrew literature) but such site usually *do* have very antique software, as they're run by enthusiasts for very little money.
Bottom line: can be browsed relatively safely, or is it better to avoid it altogether?
