The Siteground security plugin continues to report my site as unsafe with McAfee’s web black listing. Warns of PUP’s (potentially unwanted programs). In my view this is a marketing scam to try and get users to purchase the license. I have a paid licensed version of Akismet running on my site and Wordfence free version, both of which report the site as in good health. The site was only installed in the past week or so using Siteground’s own tools, and the ONLY thing I have added was the Divi theme from Elegant Themes. It may be that McAfee detects this as some kind of suspicious code or something and if so that’s rubbish. And of course, there is no actual detail around the warning other than my site is “not as secure as it should be” (insert you need to buy our license here)!!!!!! Pretty sure this is a Sales/Marketing ploy to get people to purchase their protection, very disappointing indeed! If there is a genuine risk why not provide details on the scan instead of a cryptic message to scare people into buying the service?
