Warning on Constant Contact
« on: May 24, 2024, 08:34:29 PM »
I'm getting a URL:Phishing on all links that begin with https://conta.cc/. conta.cc is Constant Contact, a major commercial email provider. Is this a false positive?

Thanks.

Thanks. Just did. I hadn't realized there was a formal way to report it.

Thanks. The Quttera report detail (HTTP redirection to http://www.constantcontact.com) does make it look like a false positive.

Not if it is a suspicious redirect.

I don't think in this case a redirect to www.constantcontact.com would be considered suspicious.

Did you file a report with Avast?  Phishing alert gone?

Yes, I did. Haven't received a response yet, but Avast is no longer giving the phishing alert.
