My website being blocked for apparent URL:Phishing
« on: March 16, 2020, 07:30:06 AM »
Hello, I'm having problems with my website - www.shiny.ae whenever I try to access it from any computer that has Avast installed it does not allow access and the attachment popup appears which states that the website is infected with URL:Phishing.

Please unblock this Url, thank you

Hi alireza.021,

Your website could be quite considerably more secure.
Has a mediocre F-grade scan result here: https://observatory.mozilla.org/analyze/www.shiny.ae

Outdated PHP version. : : PHP 5.6.4

Wait for a final verdict from an avast team member, they are the only ones to come and unblock,

Our virus specialists have now cleared its reputation in our database.

With URLs this change should be instant, but it might take up to 24 hours with files.
