Getting A URL:TechScam message Help
« on: October 17, 2021, 02:38:22 PM »
Hey my name is Jakob and every time I go on a particular stream on twitch I get this message from avast
and cannot see the stream

we're safely aborted connection on video-edge-345f4.cph01.abs.hls.ttvnw.net because it was infected with URL:TechScam

How do i solve this problem so I can watch the stream again thanks for the help.

You would only be able to go to the web page if the virus labs team consider it a false positive.

This is the point of reporting it so that it can be investigated, it doesn't allow access just because you report it.  That is step one.

Well there is an additional problem that security scanners report that the website cannot be scanned.
Unable to report on this hostname as it does not resolve to an IP address.
Tunnel connection failed. Cannot verify connection.  DNS checker gives a 503.

So probably you are barking at the wrong tree - should be Cloudflare's and Twitch Interactive Inc. in Washington,

That's all we know so far, wait for a final verdict from avast team.

"ttvnw.net" belongs to "twitch.tv."

this is what the "ublock origin" extension shows while i am watching a video-stream at twitch.tv:

The Twitch platform site has weak F-grade-security.
Webpage Behaviour Report says -
hxtps://twitch.tv links to the following External Domains:
==>-static.twitchcdn.net
==>-p.twitchcdn.net
==>-static-cdn.jtvnw.net

See: https://sitereport.netcraft.com/?url=https://www.twitch.tv
