URL: phishing - AVAST is blocking the website
« on: September 24, 2020, 04:25:36 PM »
Hi guys,

AVAST started to block my website https://yourextramarketer.com/ since we have updated it (a week ago).

I'm pretty sure the site is free from any viruses.
I checked it here as well - https://prnt.sc/un4x03

Could you tell me, please, what's the reason for this alert?

Thanks in advance!

1. The Virustotal screenshot indicates this scan was from 3 years ago, you would need to rescan that to get an accurate return.

2.  VT doesn't actually do a virus scan of your site but checks it against blacklists.

3.  I get no indication from avast when visiting the site, which makes me wonder what your intention was/is.  Some do this as site promotion (link spamming) which can get you banned.

But it is no longer detected, which I guess you didn't check before this latest post.
