Network Protection - Malicious Content

Telstra Broadband Protect blocking my website

I have a website that gets the message:

This website only has one page - a landing page. There is no content, let alone malicious content.

Re: Network Protection - Malicious Content

Two (2) reputable sources rate your site as having Malware (Bitdefender and Fortinet). wget on my secure forensic machine hosted somewhere in the cloud downloads your "landing page" and sees a lots of java scripting... Your landing page is actually 319K... I need to be on my work machine to do more analysis, but I am guessing some of the code you've used is not kosher or is being marked as such by some rating engines...
DISCLAIMER: I do not work for Telstra or any other ISP. I never did. I have wealth of practical knowledge in Computer Security and Forensic Computing. I have been in the field since 1985.

Likes (formerly Kudos) and solutions are appreciated!!!

Hi @crystyh


If your site is being flagged and blocked by our network protection filters there will be a reason for this, you'll need to resolve these issues with your chosen IT professional or reputable security services for it to be unblocked I'm sorry.
