Well, because of internet shenanigans, my blog site and nearly all of my links had been branded and in less than 24 hours rebranded as safe now by Webroot BrightCloud Threat Intelligence Support. I say nearly all because for some unaccountable reason, the Scottish Delirium Association is still branded as a threat that “…there is some probability that you will be exposed to malicious links or payloads” if you visit the site.
I’m pretty sure it’s utter nonsense that the Scottish Delirium Association would pose any kind of internet threat. It’s dedicated to prevention and better management of delirium. Professor Alasdair MacLullich is Secretary of the Scottish Delirium Association, and is also Honorary Consultant in General and General and Geriatric Medicine, Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, President of the European Delirium Association, and Secretary of the Dementia and Deliriium Special Interest Group, British Geriatrics Society. Why should Webroot be suspicious of such a distinguished medical researcher and an organization as unimpeachable as the Scottish Delirium Association?
I’ve sent a message to the Scottish Delirium Association website and suggested they contact Webroot BrightCloud. I don’t think I’m allowed to request a reputation change on their behalf. I’ve also sent a message to Professor MacLullich.
As for the raft of other websites who were unfairly branded until today…they’re rebranded and they’re back. I hope the same will happen soon for the Scottish Delirium Association.
