I just visited my blog after ages and noticed some of my headers are triggering a malicious URL warning.
I went to write a blog post with a screenshot, I noticed all of the images served from files.wordpress.com (actually eksith.files.wordpress.com) are being blocked with an AV warning.
My Antivirus is Avast and I haven’t had issues with false positives before, which I truly hope this is.
Does anyone else have the same problem?
The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)
I’ve gone through your site’s media and didn’t locate anything unusual, so this looks to be a false positive from Avast. I’ve contacted them asking to remove the warning or to provide a little more information about what’s of concern.
I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back.
Thank you so much!
I’ve just heard back from Avast that this false positive should be cleared–can you let me know if you’re still seeing that message?
@pcrumm-check out the “avast” tag. A few other members reported up to and including July 7.
I updated my virus definitions just now, and it’s no longer showing up on my blog, but strangely, it’s showed up on a blog that had reblogged me :
It looks like the false positive still continues on some subdomains, but not others?
