Can't Add a certain website to Web Shield
« on: July 11, 2020, 04:38:30 PM »
I keep repeatedly getting a Avast WebShield alert for a block on...
URL:Mal on http://contagiodump.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

Yet, I have in Exceptions for WebShield

I'm running Avast Security (14.4) on MacOS Catalina 10.15.5

The issue is that this feed is part of my NetNewsWire RSS list, so I will get a pop-up which takes over input focus when it happens, and thus whatever I'm typing suddenly disa....... :)

So, it's rather annoying. How can I make sure that this URL is not blocked further. Have tried excluding the domain, but that didn't work either.
