Scipy and Mcafee Site Advisor?

I know scipy.org is legit and supplies widely used and useful python
packages. Can someone explain why my McAfee SiteAdvisor software, flags
scipy.org as a dangerous site? Pardon my ignorance, but is this a
temporary error in the SiteAdvisor database or is there some privacy
consideration involved? I am wondering if I should remove the
SiteAdvisor software, because it is not particularly reliable.

Puzzled.

SiteAdvisor says:

(http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/scipy.org)

"After entering our e-mail address on this site, we received 81 e-mails per
week. We received 2 e-mails which contained a virus."

The scipy list maintainer says they're going to add virus scanning to the
mailing list, which should, in time, get the site a better rating.
