My website wxw.linkedup.me is getting a false positive (phishing) and my students and customers are having a lot of trouble! Why this is happening? I send a ticket via your website and I didn't have a response. I need a solution ASAP please!

Ismael.

There is some statistical adtracking.js from stats.wordpress.com being blocked by adblockers,
Page is optimized for publisher ads,
but that could not be a reason to be blocked by av-vendors,
however wait for a final result from avast team,

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

But AVASt is detecting us as PHISHING, this is totally INSANE! It's incredible that this companies have this power and makes mistakes that cause SERIOUS damages to businesses. It's totally unacceptable...

My website is totally clean, I run SEVERAL test with internal and external tools and there is no problem at all.
