Website blocked by Avast
« on: June 01, 2021, 08:56:34 PM »
Hello,

Our eCommerce website "wxw.spierandmackay.com" is blocked by Avast.

We are an established menswear clothing brand since 2010 and there is no scam/ malware activity involved.

Please check and update us from your block list.

See below:

Thank you in advance.

Please 'modify' your post change the URL from www to wXw, to break the link and avoid accidental exposure to suspect sites, thanks.

Outdated software reported here, this could leave your site vulnerable - https://awesometechstack.com/analysis/website/spierandmackay.com/
Considered a Low Security Risk here - https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/spierandmackay.com - but there are some points.
Security points raised here - https://webhint.io/scanner/61f1d60e-0265-4554-a090-737dfa6c2ae1

This may or may not be why it is blocked by avast - but the points should be considered.

Could be one of any of such links flagged.

Thanks for your responses. I will look into the links shared.

Talked to Avast Support and they seem to have removed the threat warning/ block.
