Site detected as phishing? Defamation?
« on: September 11, 2022, 11:41:08 PM »
Hello, our site hxtps://www.tremplin-numerique.org/ is blocked by Avast due to "Phishing".
This is totally false, we do not offer anything paid on our site, which is a B2B web agency.
If you accuse us of phishing, do you have any proof to provide? Otherwise, it is defamation.
Please fix this as soon as possible.
Cordially.

Avast blocks nearly every website, they put no time and clearly no effort into their detection for websites. I'm currently looking for a better extension. The fact that I have to manually add an exception for every other website is completely outrageous. REMAKE THE EXTENSION AVAST

Do you even read the response as there are things that could contribute to detections - sites that have weaknesses, outdated software could leave a site vulnerable to attack.

Massive over exaggeration "Avast blocks nearly every website" not in my experience, but then again you don't give examples or screenshots of alerts.  So how can anyone possibly comment.

The site: -https://www.tremplin-numerique.org/ is no longer being flagged by Avast.

Apart from what DavidR so aptly has reported on that website,
one should also consider this insecurity flagged by TrackerSSL:

Quote
Website is insecure by default

100% of the trackers on this site could be protecting you from NSA snooping.
Tell tremplin-numerique dot org to fix it.

 All trackers
At least 2 third parties know you are on this webpage.

 -www.tremplin-numerique.org
-www.gstatic.com Google
Legend

 Tracker could be tracking safely if this site was secure.

 Tracker does not support secure transmission.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

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