False (?) positive URL:Phishing at Spotify
« on: April 19, 2023, 05:16:14 PM »
Hello,

Could somebody advise if they are experiencing the same issue, please?

There seems to be a problem with Spotify website - not sure if this might be a real threat or just some bug in my Avast app.  I am using Avast Premium Security,  version 23.2.6053 ; build 23.2.7961.780 (virus definitions version 230419-0)

I was listening to the music logged in to my Spotify account for almost whole day without any issues. But after few hours break, the website stopped working and upon refreshing it in Opera browser, I got below warning from Avast.

I opened a new window with Spotify page in the browser and logged out of my account, but every time I got into my browser history opening already bookmarked Spotify page or any random artist page I want to listen to (even now when I'm logged out), Avast pops up with the same warning message.
However, when I close the browser and enter the initial Spotify page, Avast does not report any issue.

Is anybody experiencing the same issue as I do?
Thanks in advance for any help/feedback.

Hi,
I was just asking if anybody else is experiencing the same issue as I do, as I was not really sure if this is supposed be a real threat or some kind of bug in Avast.
I am very new to these things ... but anyway, thanks for the link.

For me Spotify works normally, no detection on https://open.spotify.com/
