how to report false positive?
« on: November 07, 2016, 10:35:39 PM »
Avast Pro blocked the Slimjet auto updater, and it appeared not in quarantine.

How can I tell Avast? Hos can I get support?

Is that link also available for website's false positives? I have seen some lately.
For example, it reported me that this freight forwarding company which is totally legit as a phishing webpage. Anyway, after a few day I see the problem was fixed by itself.

Did you even look at https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php ?
It clearly has the option "report a url"

What makes you think the reports for the website(s) are false positives?
Have you ran any scans on them ?

I have many links to online domain (and other scanners) on my little website that you can use > http://www.ache.nl
