wk.pl Website Blocked By Avast
« on: October 27, 2020, 03:50:57 PM »
I have a Apple 10 XS Max and has the free Avast AV installed. For a few weeks now multiple times a day, I receive warnings from Avast, “Malicious Website Blocked - wk.pl. “I’ve found nothing online about wk.pl and nothing when searching in this forum. Is this something to be concerned about?

Witam 123jkh,

This site is not just flagged as a PHISH by avast's but also by Netcrafts as a dangerous website.
Look also here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/3bf811dd136047e8b1743de31d2d34d223c4613578ce0dd88f7898540ecf23ae/detection
With 9 av engines detecting this somain, there is not much room for a False Positive, isn't there.
Sophos even qualifies the website as "sophos   malware repository, spyware and malware".
"No two ways about this". Final URL = -http://wk.pl/?_fb_noscript=1

Site is blacklisted also by Google Safebrowsing and with malware: https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/wk.pl
