For me it is more a matter of trust and not how the program scores on any arbitrary set of test results. It is just too much for me to put the security of my system in the hands of a Chinese security company.

In a country which exercises extreme control over what its people can view on-line, etc. I just wonder if there aren't any sort of hooks into the program, etc. I'm a trusting sort (NOT) and this really is too much of a stretch for me, no matter how good (or bad) this application might be, sad really.

So basicly you think that all sites are good, huh?

I agree that WOT is unfair but that's why I contribute to it, to make it a better site scanner.

If you don't like free quick site scanners, just look at the whole url yourself with
http://www.selfseo.com/html_source_view.php
and then scan the installation file on virustotal.

@YoKenny
What is good then?

Total fail. In addition to WOT, urlvoid shows all your "reliable" sources. that site is not even *listed* on your lovely hphost - seems you guys think that 360.cn is bad huh?
