An anonymous viewer brought to my attention that McAfee’s so called “SiteAdvisor” had labeled with the big evil red X

It turns out that McAfee SiteAdvisor scanned Infinity Exists and found the Jamesgo.dll Worm, which I uploaded so you guys can see how it works.

I just think McAfee should take into account the content of the website instead of just blindly scanning the internet for viruses. Now people interested in computer hacking will be disinclined to visit Infinity Exists because they’ll see this:

Well anyways, that my rant on McAfee SiteAdvisor
