HostingDude.com Detected as Virus
« on: March 01, 2019, 10:48:39 PM »
Hello guys.

As the title says, Hostindude.com, which is an affiliate of Godaddy.com. is being detected as a virus every time I log in to my account.

I am using Avast version 19.2.2364 (build 19.2.4186.436) and have the cleanup addon, which I installed right now, as I did not realize I had to activate it after I paid for it. It just sat silence there awaiting activation. I guess you could improve that also in the GUI of the program.

Anyway, back to the topic, the website is hostingdude.com and ONLY avast is detecting it as a virus. I currently have around 12 domains with them and it is pain having to turn off the antivirus shields every time I go to renew a domain.

The message given is as follows:

Thread Secure
We've safely aborted connection on www.hostingdude.com because it was
infected with URL:Phishing.

I will appreciate if this can be fixed.

Thank you.
