Search engines do not have the time or capacity to filter rogue sites, so they often leave the end user to make their own decision on whether a site is legitimate or not. Snag is, how do you make that decision? Unless you're a web developer, a rogue site may appear to be well designed, professional and implemented with secure encryption. One way around this problem is to rely on other people's opinion and see this opinion as soon as you enter the site.
McAfee SiteAdvisor for Firefox 26.5 is a free add-on that will enable you to see how McAfee and other users rate the site you are visiting. SiteAdvisor uses a traffic light approach to safety, with green stating the site is safe and legitimate, through to red, which states the site has potential issues. You can then go to the SiteAdvisor website to read other users' opinions.
Note that there is also a version for Internet Explorer.
