Hello Avast Community,

I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out with a concern regarding my website, which has been flagged as malware by Avast Antivirus. After thorough investigation, I have determined that the issue seems to be specific to Avast, as the site functions perfectly on every other device and with other antivirus software.

This flagging has been perplexing as my site is clean and free from any malicious content or activities. As such, I am seeking guidance on how to resolve this issue and ensure that my website is not erroneously flagged by Avast in the future.

I am not sure if I can post, or whether it is smart, my website link on the forum.

I understand the importance of maintaining a secure online environment, and I am committed to ensuring that my website complies with all security standards. Any assistance or insights you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Avast does not flag that site now.

L.S.

This is avast at it's best, react when needed, refrain from reacting also when needed.
