Can someone facilitate checking a site that Bitdefender claims is defective?
1
Hello,
I have a similar issue as a poster described back in June.
I can't figure out how to ask Bitdefender to check the site and let me know if it's REALLY infected or how to fix.

A website I use and help maintain (http://www.odessawa.com/) is getting blocked as dangerous. It started around the time that the owner of the website, The Town of Odessa,  switched to a different ISP and web host. It's an older html site that I use Dreamweaver to upload new or edited pages/files to. The site really needs to be replaced with a more modern WordPress site, but there's no budget for it. 

Anyway, like the poster with a similar issue last June, the website will not load unless I allow the website as an exception to my Bitdefender antivirus software to get to the website, and there's a notice that the site contains dangerous links.  (I have recently followed a lot of the links on the website but maybe not all of them.) After I allow an exception and access the website I am given this notice in Bitdefender. 

  • Infected web page detected
  • Feature: Online Threat Prevention
  • We blocked this dangerous page for your protection: http://www.odessawa.com/ Dangerous pages attempt to install software that can harm the device, gather personal information or operate without your consent.

The Odessa website loads on my phone and computers with different antivirus  programs with no warnings. Any help or information would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Karen Robertson
