My site was blocked
« on: September 28, 2020, 05:15:04 PM »

The Avast system incorrectly marked my website as phishing. How can I confirm the security of the site? Besides sending a notification of false positive.

I'm losing a lot of views due to this problem, so I need a quick answer.

Any suggestion is welcome :)

If you think that it's a "false positive", ask AVAST to review you website using this link:

Thank you! I've already sent a petition, but is there a quicker or more direct way to contact them and solve the problem?

Or is there any documentation they may ask so I win some time preparing it?

Dear Infratech Solutions,

Hardening protection for that website however is advisable:
as been reported here on

Found is an ongoing campaign of phishing attacks against vulnerabilities with Phusion Passenger Enterprise 6.0.2 server;
On that read:

DOM-XSS issues: Results from scanning URL: -
Number of sources found: 25
Number of sinks found: 412

Improvement recommendations for this website:
Especially tips here on security:

Now wait for a final verdict from an avast team member, as they are the only ones to come and unblock.
We here are just volunteers with ample knowledge in the field of website security analysis and website security intelligence.

There was another domain that reported a false positive at the V&W section of these official avast forums
in the similar IP range of
Reported was an issue concerning facebook in combination with clickfunnels dot com
offering discount coupons, that somehow not materialized adn for which someone came up with a bad review,
so the site became qualified as scam site.

What avast has been flagging as PHISHing will be certainly known from their final verdict.
