false positive www.pcrisk.com

Recommended Posts

Hi, iam getting reports from my sites users that it is being blocked by MalwareBytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) as dangerous. Strange, because www.pcrisk.com is created to help internet users fight spyware, viruses.... MalwareBytes Anti-Malware is recommended software in this page: http://www.pcrisk.com/anti-spyware-software I think this is some kind of misunderstanding. Hope you can fix it soon. Thank you.

There's actually 2 issues here;

1. Your site is sitting on a SoftLayer IP range (and ISP with a history of housing malicious sites)

2. Your site is using misleading means to promote PCTools software (last I checked, SpywareDoctor did NOT remove anything without requiring the user pay for a licence *FIRST*, and you're also failing to mention your affiliate relationship).

The latter however, is not the reason your site is blocked - Malwarebytes AntiMalware blocks IP addresses, not domain names. In saying this, I've checked my records, and there are currently no active cases on this IP, so I'll get it unblocked - but I'd strongly recommend you both fix the issues with your site, and move to a more reputable host.

The ads in a website offer to download a free scanner, not a free remover. Thanks for unblocking our IP.

I wasn't born yesterday. These are not adverts I'm referring to - and you know that.
