Hello everybody, I'm webmaster of hxxps://wxw.pornhat.com/ (attention! adult content) Recently we've got messages from our users that Avast have flaged our domain as URL:scam. We've check our site on virustotal, urlvoid and google safebrowsing and see no security issues. Also our admin scanned servers for viruses and file changes and we are 100% sure that we was not hacked. We are pretty sure this is false positive report. Could someone from avast team remove our url from suspicious list?

Virustotal is a pretty basic check and you will probably have noted that Avast doesn't take part in the URL scan checks.

And the check on VT is 5 months old, though it is still the same when I refreshed the scan.
Considered a Low Security Risk here - https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/trademastery.com - but there are some hardening improvements listed.
Outdated software listed here - https://awesometechstack.com/analysis/website/trademastery.com/ - this could leave the site open to exploit.
-  This may or may not be what Avast is alerting for - but you should certainly address this.

Your first port of call might have been using this link given several times in this topic.
Reporting a Possible False Positive File or Website - https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php.
You should get a response in a day or two.

Hi calhounken,

In addition to the info you already achieved from my forum friend, DavidR, I report accordingly:

Nothing out of the ordinairy, blacklists and threat intell are to produce an all green:

DShield    CLEAN
AlienVault OTX      CLEAN
Cisco Talos    CLEAN
abuse.ch (Feodo)    CLEAN
URLhaus    CLEAN
Spamhaus (Drop / eDrop)    CLEAN

Your CMS (WordPress seems correctly been configured), furthermore no cloaking, no spammy looking links,
status codes all the same.

But one should consider the various vulnerabilities mentioned here for that particular IP,
you share with 84 other sites at your hoster, see: https://www.shodan.io/host/96.30.47.152

This related site kicks up an insecure connection: -http://kencalhoun.com/ -> -http://kencalhoun.com
with links to the following External Domains: ==>-KenCalhoun.jpg

So wait for a final verdict from an Avast Team Member, as they are the only ones to come and eventually unblock.
This as a response after you used the reporting link DavidR provided to you.

Have a nice day, stay safe and secure, both online and offline, that is the wish of,
