Blocked site (malware)

Hello, 

The following website has been blocked, and the Norton security message says it's a known malware site. The click through report shows 2 trojans and 27 risks. However, the vendor says their site is clean (this is their download site hosted by AWS). Could you verify please? https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/sq1-membership/guidebook/Guide+Book.pdf

Thank you.

BJM, thanks for your reply. I have forwarded that information to the vendor. Since the site in question is actually their download site hosted by AWS, they are saying it's not really an issue because a) it's not a site they directly manage; and b) they think AWS would have remedied it. I stated my case with them (ie their and AWS's joint responsibility) and am hugely concerned because the people who are downloading materials from the malicious site are either fighting cancer or are trying to prevent it. The last thing they need is another problem to deal with, when their computer is infected or hacked. The vendor is providing fantastic information to those with cancer, but unfortunately his web team members don't seem to be savvy at all. I would really like to know what the current status of that site is given their "hands off" stance. If indeed it is now safe, I will download the materials right away.

Hello Sue

I assume  you want to be a user of the website? Securi is reporting that the site is malicious also. Usually, the site's ownership has to be verified first. After that, then the site gets re- evaluated.

However, I will try  asking the Safe Web Team to re - evaluate the website since you want to be a user of the site.  Please stay tuned to this thread for a response from the Safe Web Team on Wednesday night after midnight EDT.

Thanks.

Hi SueR2,

We have manually analyzed the site ' s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com ' and found it to be clean so we have changed its rating to green.

Thank you! I really appreciate it. And I'm relieved that people battling cancer won't also have to battle viruses on their computers. Thanks again.
