Must the VeriSign logo be linked?

Postby Anno_Nüm » Thu Oct 06, 2011 9:10 pm

I just wonder, must the VeriSign logo be linked to the VeriSign website?

Here it's just an image:

Here it's correctly linked: ... m=20111005 ... om&lang=en

Quest is, is the linkage a 'must be' requirement? (I think it does... or?)

You are correct, a legitimate VeriSign seal must be linked to a VeriSign confirmation page. (Same goes for McAfee, WOT, etc trust seals.)

Note that some seals try to be tricky and link to, however seals like this are still not legitimate.

Attempting to verify the site you listed ( results in an error:

So it's pretty safe to say that their seal is fake.
