Hi. when im entering my Email and pressing link my AVG anti virus is reporting of a phishing URL or a URL:Blacklist issue..
I have no idea how to get rid of it..

here is a link for example that when i press it it sends me to a website..

I tried malawarebytes.. and scanning.. cleaning browser.. nothing worked..


a web page which is considered malicious, i not necessarily malicious...

most of the time, if you avoid pirated streaming / pirated games / pirated apps / cracks, there is no risk at all...
also be careful to install webbrowser plugins only from official websites...

in an anti malwares app you can normally define exceptions for some urls... ( i use malware bytes anti malwares, and i had to define some exceptions for some forums ^-^ )


You should be able to add it to a list of allowed sites.
As i recall you can click on details and then there is an option to ignore the warning


but this that is being added to the address is a definite bad site..
something is adding it to my address..

I never had this before when i pressed a syntax bomb link..
something is wrong..


Definitely phishing

Have you installed or updated anything of late?


yea windows updates...

this silly anti virus avg is suppose to stop such things .. yet it doesnt even recognize it when scanning


your browser is hijacked - either by a browser extension or simply by having a manipulated hosts file. Or both.
