Is the tray icon of VE change colour too if i am in a phising site?
This tool cannot be considered as anti-phishing as it was pointed
(again ... devs can correct me if I am wrong, but it seems - I am not, am I?).
It whitlisting based on certificates.
If the site is “authentic” based on the said fact only - you have a green border – it just means that you are having deal with the site you want to deal with... nothing else.
If the “authentic site” is poisoned you do not
have an idea!
It is still green – VE is not
a link-checker. There are several Tools like that out there including what Comodo has ( see about layered security in my reply above)
Those (on-line or off-line are analyzing the code
of the site.
VE does not!!! do that
Remember the case when TrendMicro Antivirus users being infected by visiting the site?
(happened with many other legit sites as well, many were/are security related)
Ok – so, if you would use VE at that time – you would have perfect green border!!!2)
as for the comment by John regarding the icon. True !
You can disable running VE on Windows startup using whatever autoruns manager you are using.
That will just decrease the booting time , which is good … at the same time the VE & its green/red border will work because … as John said : "..Browser plugin only..."*** added ***
forgot to mention - if you disable VE on Windows Startup that will eliminate the old bug that was reported but never addressed by the developers -
you'll not see the yellow notification window about inability to identify the site / or whatever... connecting to the server
The thing is - the lil bugger window will pop-up despite one never tried yet to connect to any site on Win Startup ... I know I know you may think that it's kinda communicating with some MS site - ... who cares?*** end of added ***
