First, you would have to identify the website, change the URL from http to hXXp so the link isn't active and why you consider this blocking to be incorrect ?

Many come stating the same thing only to find out the site has been hacked, etc. so it needs further investigation.

If you can post (attach) a screenshot of the avast alert.

There is a reason avast! blocked the website.

Remember: Any website has the possibility of getting hacked.

A trusted source that's reported as clean could be hacked the next day and fixed the day after.

Do as DavidR suggests and post the non-active link (hXtp://)

Hi keykey2010,

The site was most likely hacked. See attached.

The site contains an 'invisible' iframe to a suspicious co.cc site. The site's IP: http://www.urlvoid.com/ip/112.175.243.23/ contains lots of blacklisted sites. This IP has also been known to host over 120 different exploits!

Fortunately, the site appears down as urlQuery reports: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found.


avast! is protecting you. ;)

Now you can see why it isn't advisable to try and circumvent the avast alert. You should investigate (as in this topic), as the web shield has a very high accuracy rate.
