False positive
« on: October 12, 2019, 01:28:16 PM »
Hi

I just joined a reputable webhost in South Africa. When I click on the button to try access my Plesk dashboard (URL: http://wp1.hosted.site) Avast blocks the site as phising. I phoned the host. They insist you must have this URL as a false positive.

Please advise?

Thanks

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)!
