Stop a site from being blocked
« on: February 04, 2015, 04:44:24 PM »
I have Avast installed on my Mac and its been working quite well. I recently went to one of my client's sites and it was blocked due to suspected Malware. One of my developers had previously looked at the site and gave it a clean bill of health. How can I stop Avast from blocking the site. When I disable web shield it it still blocked.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,
any domain hosted on afraid.org can be used by other persons for dns hosting without your control. It happened for your/client's domain, it was misused for malicious purposes - in that case, when nobody has control on subdomains of domain (DNS hijacking), we block the whole domain in order to protect our users. For you/client, the solution is most probably only changing the dns hosting and letting us know later.
