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
Thanks, confirmed and forwarded. It should be fixed soon.


Confirmed, thank you, the Universal Credit site seems to be fixed now. DavidR reports an error, but it is clear and clean for me.

It may just be the timing/distribution of the virus signature updates, it is working now also.

Unable to access this link to Tax Account

As showing as a Phishing site still with all definitions and engines updated on Avast Premium

No Alert, but a site error page not found.

Further update, whilst I get this error page, I don't know if is because ordinarily you wouldn't access it directly, but from another page.
