Access Denied for sites Avast.ua and avast.com
« on: March 28, 2022, 10:16:48 AM »
Today I wanted to go to the site avast.ua, but was refused.
I successfully opened the site with VPN only.
I tried two browsers Chrome and Edge.
Why couldn't I open a website from Ukraine?

Witam YarNik,

Confirmed, one gets an error like
Quote
An error occurred while processing your request.
Reference #174.3d367a5c.1648474617.6bc4b2
trying to go to avast dot ua.
No canonical tag there, and DNS prefetch: off with a 301 error.

Hi Asyn,

There is redirecting to another effective uri (with added /index),
see: https://urlscan.io/result/75c0469e-1f2c-4c57-9f0a-4913b5d07e4d/
= https://www.avast.ua/index
In the browser giving in https://www.avast.ua/index certainly opens up and let you go to that site.
That's all I know, (propagation check: https://dnschecker.org/#A/www.avast.ua )

Well, getting forwarded to "index" is normal. ;)
Anyway, as the OP is Russian, see Reply #1.

But when I try to open up avast.ua in epic browser (London IP),
I get this error message:
Quote
An error occurred while processing your request.
Reference #174.c48f655f.1648479175.a55e337
When I give in avast.ua/index as address I can visit the website without further ado.
Is that an AKAMAI hick-up?

Sorry Damian, I can't comment on Epic browser - never tried/used it.
