Urgent, False Positive on Avast Web Shield, please help
« on: May 31, 2023, 01:55:42 PM »
Hi,

My website hxtps://betterauds.com is showing a false positive on avast web shield, whereas I have checked it on multiple sites.

Please see all the sites are saying it is safe, only avast is showing a false positive warning:
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/3176c5d00e182992fc7d4ae16249d6ace0bfd243395889e27c6140894ac9fee7
https://transparencyreport.google.com/safe-browsing/search?url=betterauds.com
https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/https/betterauds.com
http://www.siteadvisor.com/sitereport.html?url=betterauds.com
https://yandex.com/safety/?url=betterauds.com

I have also submitted a request on www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php.


Can someone please help me in this regard, in getting the warning removed

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

Also consider indicators: https://urlscan.io/result/139b7527-51a1-4d75-a6fb-682332652e08/#indicators

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)!
