Comments

The level of trust for [www.mvps.org] and [winhelp2002.mvps.org] is rather limited as we have seen a number of WhiteListing of known privacy invasive trackers in the past. Among the later noticed examples are assets.adobedtm.com which is commented out

# 0.0.0.0 assets.adobedtm.com #[affects landsend.com]

But future issues clearly states that this domain needs to be blocked for enhanced security of your privacy in a DnsFirewall

Another thing that is bugging us is the fact there website(s) doesn't support any SSL encryption over the HTTPs and there sites fails to load.

Try visiting [http://www.mvps.org/] which redirects to [https://www.mvps.org/] and you'll get this error message in your browser:


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.mvps.org. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR
