2.18.4. The site is blocked by the browser as containing dangerous software

Warning!

Hosting.XYZ LTD has nothing to do with blocking websites or domains within programs Google SafeBrowsing, Netcraft, PhishTank and others.

Most modern browsers use updated online lists of fraudulent sites: resources containing phishing or content dangerous for visitors' software (viruses). The reason for adding a site to these lists is usually fraudulent content, but false hits are also possible.

If your site is flagged as fraudulent, you need to first understand the reasons for adding to the lists and take steps to remove inappropriate content. Lists of fraudulent sites are periodically updated and if malicious content is removed from your site, it will soon be removed from the lists. However, to speed up the process, you can remove the site yourself from these lists.

Important points:

  • If you are unable to verify your domain in Google Search Console, then you should visit the Google Support Forum to resolve this situation. Unfortunately, there are no universal instructions for this service, due to the specifics of the problem.
  • The domain can be blocked by the domain zone registry. Hosting.XYZ LTD does not perform such blocking and cannot influence it.
  • Blocking a site or domain can significantly affect search results or site rankings. If a problem occurs, you should take steps to eliminate it as soon as possible.

These browsers use Google SafeBrowsing API. To unblock Google, follow these steps:

  1. Go to this page.
  2. Enter URL your site and proceed according to the displayed instructions (you may need to create your account in this service).
  3. Google will check for a virus on the site and ask you to download a sitemap. If you have completed all the necessary steps, the blocking from your site will be removed within 1-2 days.

More information is available on the page google support.

Físhing (English phishing, from password — password and fishing — fishing, fishing) is a type of Internet fraud, the purpose of which is to gain access to confidential user data — logins, passwords or account numbers. This is achieved by conducting mass mailings of emails on behalf of popular resources, for example, on behalf of social networks, banks and other services. The letter often contains a direct link to a site that is outwardly indistinguishable from the real one. Once on such a site, the user can provide fraudsters with valuable information that allows them to gain access to accounts and bank accounts.

Also phishing — this is one of the types of social engineering based on users' ignorance of the basics of network security: in particular, many do not know a simple fact — services do not send letters with requests to provide their credentials, password, etc.

To protect against phishing, the manufacturers of the major Internet browsers have agreed to use the same methods of informing users that they have opened a suspicious site that may belong to scammers. At the moment, many popular browsers have this feature, which is appropriately named "anti-phishing".
