My website being blocked for apparent URL:Phishing
« on: March 16, 2020, 07:30:06 AM »
Hello, I'm having problems with my website - wxw.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
Various recommendations to improve website from linting here:

Outdated PHP version.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,

You're welcome, but you also need to address the other issues as these could be exploited.

2of My brand new websites being blocked for apparent URL:Phishing
« Reply #14 on: June 21, 2021, 07:37:14 PM »
Hi, I am a web developer and have recently bought 2 new domain names and installed exactly the same way I have installed the other 100 sites I have built. Within a couple of hours, the first site was blocked with the alert ' Threat Blocked, we've safely aborted www. because it was infected with URL:Phishing.'

My client needs his website online quickly so we bought another domain, I did report this to Avast - as a false positive - and have heard nothing back! So today I did a fresh install with the new domain (never used before) and within 3 hours of installation, it has been blocked the same as the first.

First domain was https://trusted-tattoo.com and the new domain is https://trustedtattoo.ink The first site has been deleted

These are standard WordPress sites, no ecommerce, valid SSL and once scanned no malware was found. How can I get this block removed and why is it happening so quickly, can it be an IP address? Ive never had this issue before, and my client is getting annoyed! Thanks for any help
