Policy Updates for McAfee SiteAdvisor

C&C would like to inform clients of a change to the McAfee SiteAdvisor feature integrated into McAfee user's web browsers. Currently, SiteAdvisor is implemented in a passive mode that will flag if the site you are visiting, or any search results you receive, contains malicious content that could potentially infect your computer with viruses or other malware. To more effectively protect against malicious content, SiteAdvisor policy will be changed to display a warning page when visiting sites containing potentially malicious content. The image below is a sample of what the warning page will look like.

It is hoped the this additional step will decrease the likelihood of clients accidentally clicking through to suspect sites. C&C plans to implement this policy change on Wednesday - June 1, 2011. If you have any questions or concerns please direct them to the C&C Service Desk at 864-4595 or help@mun.ca.
