False Positive - URL:Phishing
« on: April 09, 2021, 05:05:40 AM »
The error is: URL:Phishing

People using avast have reported getting this error from the site, https://bitbonez.com/

This seems to only appear with avast and every other virus check we've used has passed with no problems. I'm not sure what the issue is and I would appreciate any help.
Thanks

1 detected file communicating with this IP address:    mp4SQ.txt  is probably the reason.
It could be the token tracker is being flagged.

Wait for a final verdict from avast team, as they are the only ones to come and unblock,
we here are just volunteers with relative knowledge in the field of website security (3rd party cold recon error-hunting),

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Do not see it now being flagged by avast's,
