Issue with avast free version
« on: April 14, 2024, 08:54:32 AM »
I don't understand why avast is blocking this website. There is no clear information on this issue.

Can someone help?

Considered a low security risk - https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/ic.org - with hardening improvements suggested.

There are lots of external links on the site it is a possibility that could be impacting on the detection.

Hello,

The false positive was already submitted five days ago. Avast could have provided a clearer explanation of why the issue occurs, since nothing is written about which requests could be the root of the issue (I know other softwares point out the exact content or request that is causing the problem).
