Avast blocking this site


Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Avast blocking this site

Since 24. November, Avast is blocking this site. I have mentioned this before off-topic in another thread, but I think it deserves to be outlined here. Avast is a popular AV, so this site is, among others, unavailable to it's users, unless they disable Avast's "web shield", like I did.

 

I have no idea how serious this could be, and I suppose we could be short of security experts, so here is what some of the Avast "evangelists" (very experienced, helpful forum users) had to say:

 

https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=180984.0

 

Please, consider this while upgrading the site's software. Consulting the host could be useful. As one of the helpful guys (see link above) said: "When I see infections/problems like this I always wonder where the security from the host is. The host should have detected it and at least should have noticed the domain owner of the problem(s) in my opinion."

After today site update to

Mart,

after today site update to Drupal 7.41, chrome is not blocking the site anymore.

Even the spam I had in the site frontpage when using Chrome on my Android smartphone is gone.

 

Can you check if the site update has fixed the Avast issue as well?

JQuery version

FYI, I just now (11:45 AM PST Tuesday) updated the JQuery version. That might help some of the checks.

AVAST still blocking the site

Hello Doug

Avast is still blocking the site.

I excluded it from scanning and I've access. Earlier, when I wanted to go to the forum Chrome blocked the acces with a red screen with warnings. That is over now by the update.

Kind regards

Henk

No more blocking here

I suggest clearing the browser's cache, on my computer Avast has no more problems with the site. Neither has Chrome. JQuery-related problem seems to be solved. I'll try some other checks later.

 

Thanks for your efforts,

 

Mart
