URL: Phishing false positive - HELP?
« on: August 01, 2019, 09:01:20 PM »
One of my clients' sites is throwing what I believe is a false positive, URL:Phishing.

The site in question is emcsecurity.com. Their google ads are coming back clean, so we're at a loss if it's not a false positive.

Hi Sakamoto,

That retirable jQuery library had nothing to do with the avast FP detection, now elevated.
More with the minified js code of the regular expression in: 
https://myhair.sakacdn.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp
read on that particular subject here: https://github.com/SnakeskinTpl/Snakeskin/issues/69
just meant for hardening your security there,

一切都很好  all's well that ends well, a.k.a everything is fine,
