Please 'modify' your post change the URL from http to hXXps and or www to wXw, to break the link and avoid accidental exposure to suspect sites, thanks.  Better is to just post the domain name.

Avast isn't the only one, considered a Critical Security Risk here https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/welcomehiker.org
Outdated software reported here https://awesometechstack.com/analysis/website/welcomehiker.org/
Security hints given here https://webhint.io/scanner/1e1b882f-f5f7-4186-863f-b5da040539b1

These may or may not be the cause, but could contribute to it.

Reporting Possible False Positive File or Website - https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php.  If there is a genuine issue it may not be removed, you would normally be contacted in a day or two. 

But I would certainly address the points these other checks raised.

I am an Avast user and not an Avast Team member, so have no control over removal.
