Avast is producing a false positive on my website.
« on: February 01, 2012, 10:07:22 PM »
Hello,

Some of my users that use your software can not access one of my websites, as it is coming up as a "malicious URL blocked", which makes little to no sense to me. I hope that this false positive can be dealt with, as there is no reason (to my knowledge) as to why it would be deemed a malicious URL.

Site URL:
http://sharefast.net/

Thank you for your time,
Josh F

bit defender seems to detect something too but well, most AV don't (I know, Avast does), so it could be an FP

... further analysis is needed anyway
