False positive - CoronavirusAlertApp.com

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I started a project to help to prevent the coronavirus spreading.
We are working with government authorities in Bolivia in this solution. They are supporting us in the design and definition of the features in our platform.
 
Some users reported phishing messages on their devices. We are not a phishing website. We are just helping the community to notify their network when positive cases are tested.
 
This is our website:
 
Are we OK in your records?
 
 
Sincerely,

Hello-

 

Please provide the logs showing the block, I'm not seeing this domain in our database, is it a domain block, IP block or Browser Guard block? We'll review and get back to you once we have that info, thx for your patience

Hi. There's no log. We just received comments from some users who received a notification about phishing activity. They use Norton and/or Avast in their cellphones. 

We are contacting every major antivirus/security vendor to ask if they can kindly include us in their whitelist. 

 

Thanks.

The website is not currently blocked by Malwarebytes Browser Guard or our main program database.

https://www.appcoronavirusalert.com/
URL is 0/76 on VT

Has an Android APK download that is 0/59 on VT

McAfee WebAdvisor lists the site for Phishing (but no details)

IPVOID has 1 block from ZeroDot1 but that looks like a FP for cryptojacking miner

It would certainly be better to get the APK for Android approved and placed into the Google Play Store if one were to want to install it.
