I've noticed that McAfee SiteAdvisor has reclassified HBH from green to red due to a download called backdoor.zip (FOUND: BackDoor-COO trojan).

I don't know how McAfee has found this because I can't find it any where, maybe an Admin could find out?

It's a link to the zip file. I encourage HBH staff to not remove the link, but merely obfuscate it. Perhaps add a small warning.

I don't take the SiteAdvisor too serious though. Automated security is stupid security.

I wasn't saying remove it, just couldn't find it using search, that's a good article.

I was just commenting on McAfee SiteAdvisor, alot of red classified sites should be green in my mind as they inform people on what to look out for.

I agree with you on that one. I have used that site (user comments) to double-check links that WOT (Web of Trust-FF add-on) rates red. If you read through the comments, you often find that many disagree with SiteAdvisor's ratings.

... That's why he linked it. You contributed something that ended up being useful (without the 'ahahaha' bit).

It is a rating system for determining how safe sites are. The difference between the two is that the user has a more direct effect on how the site is rated. It is split into four categories:
-Trustworthiness
-Vendor Reliability
-Privacy
-Child Safety

It has simple colors to help you discern whether or not a site is safe:
Gray-Unknown
Yellow-Cautious
Red-Dangerous
(On the main site mywot.com, it gives a numerical scale from 0-100 as well as user comments)
When you happen across a site that is considered dangerous, it will take you to a warning screen and ask whether or not to continue.

HBH is rated green in all of the above (I also gave this site top marks in all the categories)
