Blocked here as well

The form to report a false positive is at https://www.avast.com/en-gb/false-positive-file-form.php

I have reported the universal credit and access.services URLs

Interesting (and annoying if you need them) that parts of the gov.uk site are thought to be phishing. And they say satire is dead!

I'm struggling to unblock access to the site.

I'm not sure what my start point should be.

Can not access Universal Credit sign in page on GOV.UK, Using Avast (free version with latest definition and program updates), Firefox (latest version), this is the error I get: "An error occurred during a connection to www.universal-credit.service.gov.uk. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR". Links on GOV.UK work up to when i click "Sign In"

Confirmed, please modify your link so it isn't active e.g. as I modified your quoted link universal-credit.service.gov.uk.

This can be reported here - https://www.avast.com/en-gb/false-positive-file-form.php

EDIT: I have just reported it.

The site is still being treated as 'unsafe' and 'phishing'.

I've tried turning off my Avast shields, and adding the site to my Exceptions list, but Avast still continues to block the site.

Please fix it.

Thanks

As far as I can see, the access.service part of the site can now be accessed but the universal credit link is still blocked as a phishing site
