Avast blocks clients website
« on: May 14, 2019, 11:22:21 AM »
Hi,
Avast stops connections to my clients website (https://pb.kf.se).
"/../ infected with URL:phishing"

What triggers this block, and how can we unblock it?

Do you mind explaining this. What detection? How can we enable it?

The short answer is, you shouldn't have to do anything, enable or disable it.

The virus detection for that URL has been removed/corrected from/in the virus database, so Avast users visiting that location shouldn't get an alert.  Avast users should get automatic virus definitions (by default).

I have just visited the link you gave and no alert.
