Blacklist URL
« on: February 21, 2019, 04:00:13 AM »
I am constantly having an Avast screen pop up and an alarm bell that a threat has been secured. The Threat Name is URL Blacklist.
Url is https://pushwhy.com/iwant. I don't know what to do. I ran a computer scan and it said that I had no viruses, etc.
It is very disconcerting to have this Threat screen show up over and over and over.

Help!
Elbie

Clear your browser surf history

Did that help?

Chief Wiggum: Uh, no, you got the wrong number. This is 9-1…2.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

I deleted the history, so far so good. We'll see.
Thanks, Elbie

I clicked on Virus Total but did not know what to do with it. I saw the pushwhy.com there.
