the website newsnet.ro is created on an OxWall platform.  the plugins are bought from OxWall, we have license keys for all of them, including the facebook login plugin which I have disabled now.  we have no frauds, newsnet is the official social network of the Evangelical Protestant Church in Romania and I am admin.  what Avast is doing is blackmailing us by labeling it as a "fraudulent website". On Monday, if the antivirus continues to categorize it as a virus website, I will also file a criminal complaint with the Romanian Police and the FBI both against Avast and against the others  people who own websites where we are maliciously labeled. No one makes fun of our work and the church network. Both the Romanian law, the German law and the American law expressly prohibit false statements in public computer data. The Romanian law punishes with  prison for such acts. we live and use newsnet especially in Romania and the law protects us. we will fight for every day of arrest of those who caused us this harm, because even after my warning things have not changed.  And attention, I am the coordinating pastor of the Religious Group of the Evangelical Protestant Church in Romania. Avast, you will have to pay millions of euros for what you did to us. Remember: Monday morning  today, 8 o'clock in Romania, you have a maximum deadline

How is avast blackmailing you, they haven't demanded money from you.

Considering your site as you said is the  "official social network of the Evangelical Protestant Church in Romania" a religious based one, these threats are hardly compatible.

We Avast Users have given you information on:
How to harden your site against the weaknesses highlighted.
It can also be reported as a possible False Positive, links already given in this topic several times.
Notably the one immediately before your first post, Reply #35.

Apart from discussed website weaknesses above, I have this to add.

The website is not being flagged by avast any longer,.
It still has 4 site security issues.

I only see content requests and SSL is secure.
Ziaruldebanat.ro & YouTube as external links found.

Is there a way to see the list of addresses in the "URL:Blacklist"? I was in the middle of launching a game and it gave me a URL blocklist error and the game crashed. I attempted to reload the game and now it does not prompt me with the URL:Blacklist msg. I turned off active AV and it worked until the 10 min timer was done and then it locked up and the game crashed again. Please help me find the URL in question so I can file a false positive report.

Thank you,

Did you check the url against VirusTotal. Do other vendors block it as well.
You could post a FP notice and wait for a reply from avast team.

Good morning,

Could you remove the domain pviformazione.it and all its subdomains including fad.pviformazione.it from the blacklist?

Thank you
