Avast does no longer flag this website and gives it as safe.  ;)

Also consider indicators:

Check plug-ins to be updated:
The following plugins were detected by reading the HTML source of the WordPress sites front page.

perfmatters    Unknown

Internal error -> hxtps:// redirects to htxps:// ->

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)!
