Good Morning,

I am wondering if anyone could help us. I have already filed a false positive report but I would like to expand our contact options to here too.

The domain wxw.pharmacyfirst.co.uk is being blocked as a URL:Phishing. This is a false positive. We are a genuine GPHC registered pharmacy and has only started happening since 10am GMT.

Can anyone offer advice or support to have this removed as a URL:Phishing as this website has been in operation for over 14 years and this is the first time it has happened.

Thanks for getting back to me. I have done this as stated in the initial post. How long does it normally take for the request to be reviewed as I've not had this problem before?

It can be anything from a couple of hrs. to a few days.

Being a 'genuine GPHC registered pharmacy', doesn't mean your aren't liable to attack or outdated software.

Your site needs some work - https://en.internet.nl/site/pharmacyfirst.co.uk/1705427/ - to beef up security.

Webpage Security Score E - A+ is the best score you can get - https://snyk.io/test/website-scanner/?test=220912_BiDcQ4_A2K&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=webpagetest&utm_campaign=website-scanner

Hi PFDanny,

Unsatistactory trust to connecting out to dwin1 dot com, see: https://www.scamvoid.net/check/dwin1.com/

But your website as such is potentially safe:
https://www.scamvoid.net/check/pharmacyfirst.co.uk/  (just scan updated from 9 years ago).

I checked here: https://checkphish.ai/insights/url/1663324570978/undefined?back=null

Re: urlscan.io/result/8e47adc2-43cb-43b4-9fa7-42d56b595cec/ 

So nothing in particular flagged there.

But see all the risks and vulnerabilities of this website with outdated Magento CMS here.
Going over all mentioned issues with this report:
https://www.magereport.com/scan/?s=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pharmacyfirst.co.uk%2F

Website goes unprotected against Brute Force attacks, qualified as a Medium Risk
Unprotected CMS version detected, this should qualify as a High Risk

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)!
