False positive on phishing list
« on: December 11, 2019, 08:00:29 PM »
Hi, the website https://maralauxen.com.br/ used to be infected half a year ago, but since then it was redone from scratch and it is using a new webserver.

We have checked on a lot of tools (Google, Sucuri, WordPress plugins, etc., etc.) and all show that the website is clean. But Avast is still showing to users as if it was a phishing attempt.

Can this website be removed from this list?

Recent detections on this domain by 3 av engines here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/8082470b5fe09d3018eaf1216160291761f2d27486c3ecd1b0a24f1c9225552f/detection
even 7 and 9 detections yesterday and the day before yesterday:
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/ip-address/108.179.252.87/relations

So you have to wait for a final verdict from an avast team member, they are the only ones to unblock or persist detection.

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)!
