What website is it? Whether it was compromised cannot be 100% determined via the VirusTotal service.

Can you explain why, please?

i would say if some other 75 vendors determined that a website is safe , than it is safe.....

First of all, the url check feature checks a website against blacklists only. It does not scan actual files on websites. To check actual web content, run a Quttera scan instead.

Hi Marcos, Thanks for your reply. The web site is hxxp://dutyfreeholding.com/

I want to know why ESET is blocking that website? Could you help me with that.? What is the reason?

I scan the website with Quttera scan as you suggested and it is clean.

Normalized URL:

 https://dutyfreeholding.com/

Last scan date:

 5/5/2022, 12:30:27 PM

Current status:

 Clean

Firefox also blocks the website; reason dutyfreeholding.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.

You are right, but the "black list" was generated after the website was analyzed.

Not all websites that contain malware are blacklisted. For instance, we cannot blacklist gmail just because users receive malware in a gmail mailbox.

Ok, right now who is blocking the Website is ESET because of PUA. I want to know the reason ESET is blocking the website. There is a way i could be able to know the reason? I checked the url with the web page that you recommended Quttera scan  and the url is clean.

how can i open this website if ESET is not removing the website? I do not want to disable completely PUA.

The site has been unblocked since the malware has been removed.
