Hallo Liubomirwm,

Norton says that the site is safe:

http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=website-unavailable.com&ulang=eng

Hi Steven, i know that. I haven't said that norton blocks it, just avast. I think it's a false positive and reported to avast from here: http://www.avast.com/contact-form.php the site is safe by Bitdefender: https://trafficlight.bitdefender.com/info?url=http://website-unavailable.com/

Hi, earlier today i have sent the issue to the avast virus labs and they have replied that in the next update(130813-1 which already is a current version) the detection will be removed. After the update i also saw that the site is still detected and have notified them again. :)

You need to clear the browser cache, otherwise it will keep on detecting it until it auto expires in cache...

That's good to know. It is causing Havoc on my Network.

I cleared the cache from the history page and from the cmd.exe

Thanks for your input, but unfortunately, clearing the Cache won't help in this instance. It's the Web Shield that is causing this issue. Every time a user gets redirected to "block*DOT*opendns*DOT*com", they will recieve a trojan alert.

We need an update from Avast ASAP to resolve this.

Kind Regards,
Stephen

Hi studio_two,
I have just received an email from the virus lab and they told me that "it should definitely be ok now." ::)

Hi studio_two,

It wasn't with 130813-1 but appears to have been resolved on 130814-0.

Many Thanks,

We now have 130814-0 on our mirror server, so hopefully, the clients will all update shortly.
