Insecure Websites.. if any ?
I browse a lot, read matter from different web sites, subscribe to different websites, download contents from different web sites...
I'm now having a doubt...
How do I trust whether a site is genuine..
I mean, in some sites like.. Yahoo! Vulnerability test, I doubt the site's intentions. (whether it harvests the passwords)...
Does anybody know some sites which aren't truthful, 'n have some hidden intentions in them ??
How can we find out whether a site is actually "white" or "black" ?

well you just have to use common sense for most of the time. I.E. You dont need a site such as yahoo or whatnot to ask for CC information to prove you're 18 to view certain chatrooms.
Also you do not need a third party website such as zingbat:
To download microsoft security updates. Common sense is the strongest defense in this case, and knowledge helps a lot too. Unfortunately for users, those two are not very common in the general public.
