Reviews for web of trust, mywot/wot: website reputation rating – add-ons for firefox (en-us)

This used to be a good add-on, but last year they redesigned it to be basically non-functional unless you register for their services.
It also vastly slows down browsing; for me it was adding 10-15 seconds for EVERY page load, and significantly slowing down browsing within pages. This was going on for months, which I attributed to browser updates, but after removing this specific extension the problem was immediately resolved.

You can see in older reviews that they keep claiming this was a bug that they’ve fixed, which is clearly not true.
Do not install this. If you still have it installed from back when it was worth using, the sooner you get rid of it the better.

OS: Windows 7

Firefox: 91.0.1

For Developer: send me an address to send picture of the button if you don’t know which button I mean.

Very useful app. The latest version sometimes seems broken. For example, pressing the button that shows up on Firefox (on the button bar next to the URL address) sometimes gives something similar to this:

Раніше активно використовував цей додаток, сьогодні планував його встановити і почав шукати, натрапив на опис у Wikipedia:

WOT Services has partnerships with Mail.ru, Facebook, hpHosts, LegitScript, Panda Security, Phishtank, GlobalSign and TRUSTe.

In November 2022, a German state media investigation found that WOT Services had secretly collected personal user details and sold or licensed this information to unidentified third-party businesses and entities for data monetization purposes. This activity breached the privacy rules and guidelines set by several browsers. As a result, the browser add-on was involuntarily removed from Mozilla Firefox’s add-on store, and voluntarily removed from other browsers’ add-on/extension stores. WOT was eventually reinstated.

On November 1, 2022, German public broadcasting station NDR reported the results of an investigation by in-house journalists, showing that WOT collected, recorded, analyzed and sold user-related data to third parties. The data obtained was traceable to WOT and could be assigned to specific individuals, despite WOT’s claim that user data was anonymized. The NDR investigative journalism report was based on freely available sample data, and revealed that sensitive private information of more than 50 users could be retrieved. The information included websites visited, account names and email addresses, potentially revealing user illnesses, sexual preferences and drug consumption. The journalists also reconstructed a media company’s confidential revenue data, and details about an ongoing police investigation.

German media contacted WOT Services with the results of the investigation prior to publication of the report. WOT declined to comment on the findings.

Тому ні, дякую, зашкварний додаток я не буду ставити.

BEWARE — SPYWARE

https://uk.pcmag.com/web-sites/85858/web-of-trust-browser-extension-cannot-be-trusted

«The NDR investigation discovered that while you have the WOT extension installed, extensive data collection is going on in the background. But WOT not only collects and records data on a per-user basis, it then analyzes and sells it on to third parties.»

«The WOT Privacy Policy states that your IP, geographic location, device type, operating system, browser, the date and time, Web addresses, and overall browser usage are all collected, but that it is «non-identifiable.» But NDR found that it was a simple task to link the anonymized data to individual users of the service. The data retrieved included:

It’s one of the add-ons I’ve been using for the longest time. Its logo works as a led light. It changes color according to the reputation of the site you’re visiting, thus warning you of potential threats. Gray means there’s no record yet about that site, green means no issue, and so on.
In case of scam or other serious danger, it blocks the page with a banner, which the user may however bypass at his own risk.
Sites’ reputation is the result of reports from the surfing community. Clicking on the logo, you can access available details, such as rating, type of threat (scam, adult content, etc.) and users’ comments or reviews. By registering you can add your own. As it did, and still does to me, it renders an excellent service to stubborn surfers who tend to be carried away by their mouse.

*NEW REVIEW*

5 years ago I gave up with this add-on, because it was slowing my browser to crawl. Now it was even worse, because right after installing the whole machine was stuck so badly that I couldn’t even switch from GUI to text console (I’m using Linux — it takes something really wrong for this to happen) and try run «killall -9 firefox-bin». And the HDD kept churning something (I guess it was swapping! I have 16GB RAM, my machine almost never needs to use swap space!).

Finally I killed the power (thanks a lot, I had a lot of stuff open in other applications! Thank god FireFox offered to reload my crashed session).

When FireFox then loaded, I went straight to the add-on manager and disabled WOT. I didn’t want to see if it would behave any better after restart — I don’t like messing with rebooting, especially by force from power button!

I gave you 1 star last time and now I would love to give you zero, if possible, because that was not acceptable!

Otherwise your add-on is great, and might run smoothly on this machine, if it’s code was *written well*. Your add-on after all is not that complicated, it shouldn’t have ANY effect on speed. And my current machine also has add-ons that run smoothly despite of being quite heavy on resources.

*MY OLD REVIEW FROM 5 YEARS AGO*
First I really thought I was going to like it. I’ve used WOT through NoScript to check which sites to allow and sometimes to check the site I’m on via FlagFox…
But under only couple hours I noticed that my whole browser had slowed down, I was getting «script busy» errors, and yes, they were from this plugin.
It’s not a brand new machine, only a year old or so, I think it’s 1,6Ghz dual-core Atom CPU netbook with Windows 7 (uh, I normally over install linux right away) and with FireFox 30.0
Disabling the plugin fixed the problem with one swift browser reboot.

§

Hey, Thanks for sharing it. During the last days, we became aware of an issue with Firefox that prevented add-ons from running or being installed. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused. We wanted to let you know this issue has been solved now!

§

WOT Services was caught and widely reported for taking whatever information people provided about themselves plus the sort of information about the ISP associated IP address people queried WOT from, regarding the trustworthiness of other Web sites. (Can you say «pernicious hypocrites»?)

I would suggest that anyone reading reviews of WOT here or elsewhere do a little research about the organization and what they were up to as of 2022, and quite possibly years before and now after they got caught.

You cannot say you have not been warned, repeatedly. I am merely conveying the same sort of bad news that several others have been posting for many months, and just got tired of seeing all the short, «WOT is wonderful!» reviews that do not even mention much less address the issue of how WOT was doing exactly the sort of thing they purported to be protecting (many not very Internet-savvy) people who went to them for advice on unsafe or unsavory sites lurking behind URLs they knew little about.

Hint: when any good or service that has been around awhile suddenly starts getting a lot of strong criticism for valid reasons, while any negative comments are constantly diluted by a steady stream of vapid reviews claiming the product is better than sliced bread, cuter than a week-old puppy, and might even bring peace to the world, end poverty, and cure cancer in the near future (OK, I am exaggerating — a little), why would you trust them any more than you would some strange clown who was wandering around your neighborhood handing out candy to little kids?

This Add-On is great! It works as I expected it to, it helps anyone know the reputation of a site before they view it which is very useful for preventing downloading of malware/virus etc. I like all features of it and I will continue to use it as it’s a useful Add-On for anyone who doesn’t want to download malware or viruses.

Der vom NDR aufgedeckte Datenskandal »Nackt im Netz« demonstriert, wie Millionen von Internet-Nutzern, darunter Manager, Richter und Journalisten, im Netz ausgespäht wurden. Das Browser-Addon WOT (Web of Trust) hat die gesammelten Surf-Daten nicht ausreichend anonymisiert und dennoch weiterverkauft.

§

WoT’s «Active Protection» actively tracks and links your IP address to what you type on search engines, your web history, then «distributes» (or sells as some websites have warned) this information directly to others.

Taken directly from their Privacy Policy: «When you install and use the WOT app or WOT extension, we also collect from you automatically… Internet Protocol Address…Search engine results page (keyword, order/index of results, link of result, title, description, ads); web pages visited and time stamp of the visit;»

This obvious breach of privacy mingled with the fact that they were caught red-handed in selling it is UNACCEPTABLE.

§

It’s a non-intrusive extension that really helps. It’s completely community-sourced, so if someone writes a bad review for a website, it impacts the rating for the website they gave the review. For instance, let’s say person x found a phishing website. They could go under the extension, and write a review for it, in the meantime clicking «Phishing» during the review process. Then, anyone else who goes to that site, will be warned that it’s a phishing website.

§

The principle is really good but the concern, especially on sites dealing with politics, religion or controversial issues, comes from the fact that people write negatively on the basis of the substance and not the form which bias the results. Sites that are quite safe are therefore decked with negative ratings that would suggest a security risk.
That’s why I stopped to use WOT after long time of using it. And yes I remember having trouble with the logging system, maybe a conflict with another privacy/security add-on I use.
However it could be a good measure of protection but remember to use common sense.

§

WOT has a flawed rating method.

If your site is hosted as a sub-domain of a shared domain owned by your hosting service, the poor reputation is inherited from the parent domain.

This means that WOT automatically and immediately gives your site a bad reputation just based on supposition, without even bothering to actually look at your website…

So, WOT will consider your site «guilty by association» from day one!

Is this a fair and trustworthy method? No.

Following are WOT instructions on how you can get more/improve ratings for your website:
«If you want to improve the reputation, we recommend asking your friends, business partners, blog followers, or customers to submit ratings for the site. You can either ask them to use the WOT add-on, or simply point them to your site’s scorecard where they can rate the site after creating an account.»
How reliable and trustworthy is that?
Anyone wealthy enough can bribe lots of people to summit ratings in order to get a good site reputation at WOT…
Or anyone wealthy enough can bribe lots of people to summit bad ratings in order to get the competitor’s website a bad reputation at WOT…

But since you’re using the sub-domain of a free web hosting, you’re probably on a low budget, which means you can’t afford to bribe lots of people, and so your site gets toasted by the gang at WOT.

Giants like Facebook and the likes will become even more dominant, while smaller innovative and honest web sites will get a bad reputation from the start, regardless how clean and malware-free they might be.

Virtually anybody can register at WOT, you don’t even have to verify your email address or be proven as a site customer to review a website, even kids can end up rating websites…

The rating service does not distinguish between ‘distrust a website’ and ‘dislike a website’, so a website can get a poor trustfulness rating just because its published opinion is not mainstream or doesn’t fit the reviewers’ political agenda.
This makes WOT ratings highly subjective and extremely politically biased. This is a threat to freedom of speech, since they can get sites banned from Facebook.

Furthermore:
An investigation by German TV channel NDR has uncovered a serious breach of privacy by the Web Of Trust (WOT) service, which over 140 million Web surfers trust to help keep them safe online…
See also the following Guardian article, titled: » ‘Anonymous’ browsing data can be easily exposed, researchers reveal», where WOT sold a database of 3 million users, which were then de-anonymised.
Because of that Mozila has also blocked WOT add-ons older than 2022-01-20.

(Минус одна звезда, за удаление прошлого комментария с низким рейтингом)
Удовлетворительно работает последняя версия «WOT 20221015.0», хоть вы и исправили вход в учётную запись из самого приложения, но это пока не как не улучшает ваше обновление. Соглашусь может и стало что то удобно, но я пока не вижу причин обновляться с версии «WOT 20220823» до «WOT 20221015.0», так как есть не приятные моменты…
К примеру:
«WOT 20220823» работает шустро и не каких нагрузок, страницы открываются быстро, по значку сразу понятно (светится жёлтая звёздочка на фоне зелёного круга, значит оценку не ставил), ставил я оценку или нет, что очень важно…
Скриншот ➜ http://i95.fastpic.ru/big/2022/1021/1d/c3f49669f9094b18e21182eacc3cfa1d.png
А теперь не приятный момент, «WOT 20221015.0», немного притормаживает сам значок (в версии «20220823» такого не было), и это на вполне мощном железе компьютера, сборки 2022-2022 года. Теперь если глянуть на значок, то не понятно, ставил я оценки или нет (звёздочка не светится, её просто нет), и лишний раз нужно открывать приложение что бы посмотреть, что очень не удобно…
Скриншот ➜ http://i91.fastpic.ru/big/2022/1021/7d/8e9444cf94fd561ee437de070e495e7d.png
Теперь ещё один не приятный недочёт…
В разных версиях («WOT 20220823» и «WOT 20221015.0») один тот же сайт определяется по разному.
В 20220823 данный сайт определяется зелёным значком, и что сообщества уже ставило рейтинг.
В 20221015.0 данный сайт определяется серым значком, и сообществу данный сайт не известен.
И как так такое может быть? (((ведь такое на многих сайтах происходит (специально сравнивал)…

Mozilla Firefox 56.0.1
P.S.
Было бы отлично, если бы вернули «жёлтую звездочку» в круге (ведь не я один прошу), что бы сразу можно было видеть поставлена оценка веб сайту или нет. (((звёздочка есть (не поставлена оценка), звёздочки нет (оценка поставлена)…

Надеюсь разработчики примут во внимание мой коментарий, а не тупо его удалят как в прошлый раз.

Wot на firefox

Сообщество WOT — защититот онлайн-угроз, которые может обнаружить только человек. Это дополнение к антивирусу защитит вас во время работы и покупок в интернете.

Репутационные значки для принятия решений:

  • Красный — потенциальная опасность.
  • Желтый — надо быть настороже.
  • Зеленый — сайт безопасен.

Репутация сайта рассчитывается на основе современных алгоритмов и миллионов пользовательских отзывов

Характеристики: репутационные значки, предупреждающий экран, проверка всех сайтов перед посещением, защита в режиме реального времени, отзывы о сайтах.

Ключевые особенности

Web of Trust использует систему веб-репутации для каждого сайта. На основе отзывов пользователей он рассчитывает ее по специальному алгоритму, и в результате выносит вердикт о безопасности ресурса. В итоге о безопасности сайта можно будет судить по иконке, которая разместится рядом с адресом.

Впрочем, можно настроить и всплывающие окна-предупреждения. Особенно это удобно на первых порах, когда есть риск просто забыть об установленном приложении.У WOT предусмотрены варианты «Защита реального времени» и «Ручной режим». Первый – полная зашита от угроз, второй – более гибкий, настраиваемый вариант.

Приложение собирает данные. Но делает это не тайно, просто без спроса отправляя сведения разработчику, а вполне себе явно, предлагая пользователю выставить собственный рейтинг доверия для того или иного сайта. После эти данные будут использованы в дальнейших расчетах.
