    Default Bannerconnect.com blocked

    Where can I learn more about why Zonealarm is blocking Bannerconnect.com as a spysite? It happens at oDesk.com. I trust that site.

    I've searched Google, McAfee, and this forum, and can't find much at all. What's so bad about Bannerconnect? McAfee seems to think it's okay.

    You say "we are all users here" ... so what? Users figure stuff out. I'm not going to bother with tech support because it'll probably take to an hour and probably won't get an answer.

    Still no one knows anything about bannerconnect?

    McAfee SiteAdvisor - gives it a 'yellow !' rating...

    "When we visited this site, we found that its primary purpose may be to capture traffic meant for bannerconnect.net, a more popular site with a similar name."

    "Annoyances from bannerconnect.com" > "3 popups"

    And one reviewer -"This site spams"

    Nothing more I will say, other than you can report false positives to ZA.
