Title: Outlook.com False Positive?
Post by: DragonFyre19 on February 20, 2020, 10:15:15 PM
Hi all,

I'm flagging this as it's a major email provider and has spooked me a little.  I tried to login to my email account on outlook's website, login.live.com, and got flagged by avast for a URL:Phishing warning by the webshield.

Running latest version with 200219-6 definitions - has anyone else run into this today?

(I have sent an FP report too just in case)

No issue when I tried.

It only happened the first time I opened outlook's site and tried to login today.  The other times I have checked it and avast is not flagging it.  But I haven;t fully logged in just in case yet.

Hello,
the detection should be logged, maybe here: "c:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\report\WebShield.txt"
