Website wrongly blocked by Avast URL blacklist
« on: November 21, 2023, 08:55:53 PM »
Hi, I think my website (hxxp://electrideas.com) is wrongly blocked by Avast url blacklist.
Yesterdey I contacted the hosting help service (bluehost) via chat and they said that it's ok.
Since it is a very young website, I don't believe it was attacked by hackers. Besides it is a non-commercial website, and just talks about hobby elecronics and PLC.

-  Please break active links to suspect sites to avoid accidental exposure, only post the domain-name or change the https to httXp to break the link.  Or in this case don't post it as a bbcode URL (as I have broken the the quote above), just the domain name.

-  Reporting a Possible False Positive File or Website - https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php.
You should get a response in a day or two.

EDIT:
Also see these as there are a few other detections and security pointers that could be related, but should be addressed.
