Avast Web Shield Alert - Multiple web threats secured
« on: June 06, 2023, 02:54:23 PM »
For the past two days, I've been getting dozens of web shield alerts, particularly whenever I interact with (open/close/reload) a new tab in Google Chrome. They claim to be blocking a URL:Phishing threat from connect.2go2.top/authkey.json or connect.2go2.top/reputation.json. They're happening on both mac and windows (I primarily use mac) and I'm not sure what's triggering it or how to address it. I've attached screenshots of the alerts here.

Can anyone assist?

Check if no unwanted extentions or add-ons are running in your browser. Clearing cookies might help too. See if the alerts persist.

I checked and the extensions are all familiar, but clearing my cookies seems to have worked so far. Thanks so much! 🙏🏾
