WOT, Web of Trust, is a free browser security tool that warns the user about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware, or send spam email. The new WOT Website Reputation Scorecard shows, at-a-glance, the facts behind website ratings – appearances on negative sources such as phishing and spam black lists or positive sources like del.ici.ous, Digg, or Wikipedia. The scorecard provides a social platform for community members to share their valuable insights with others to increase online security. www.mywot.com Supporting Facts

“Anti-virus software is not sufficient protection against fast emerging Internet crime and new ways to attack and scam individual users. WOT offers an extra layer of protection and should be part of every Web surfer’s permanent security armor,” says Esa Suurio, CEO of Against Intuition Inc.
“As Internet crime is becoming increasingly professional, we need to find new ways to fight online crooks. Criminals have joined their forces, and so should the good guys,” says Suurio.
Against Intuition Inc. focuses on developing and providing software and services for the WOT community and promotes the community's goals to make the Internet safer. Against Intuition was founded in 2006 by two Finnish graduate students, Timo Ala-Kleemola and Sami Tolvanen.
