My Website Flagging up - Unknown Reason / Explaination - Drive By Downloads?

So, I've been advised recently that my website is flagging up, nothing had/has changed on my site for a good few years, except a recent WordPress Update.

I redirect my URL over to Cloudflare CDN, then I point it back to my VPS host.

Can you please explain what is going on?

https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=http://www.pjg-developments.com/

There is nothing really explaining what that is, and searching online (for example Wiki) doesn't return any results that explain why it's been associate with my website.

Appreciate you looking into this and giving me an explanation to either of us can fix the issue (my side or yours) as it's potentially stopping anybody who Norton getting to my site.

Regards

Paul.

well, they checked it and give me the exact same result, with no explanation or nothing.

Any other tips? thoughts?

I really don't know what this means and how it can be fixed?

I ran my site through another scanner, and it appears that two of my plugins

https://www.addtoany.com/buttons/ & https://www.w3-edge.com/products/w3-total-cache

flagged up in that, so I'm going to de-activate those plugins and try the scan again.

Re: My Website Flagging up - Unknown Reason / Explaination - Drive By Downloads?

it appears I can't do the scan again, I guess I'll have to remove and re-add it?

Hello peejaygee

I just tried your website and I haven't come across any blockages to your site. I am guessing that bjm took care of it for you.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

I actually don't know, I ran my site though another tester and it told me about a couple of plugins, I disabled them, but I've still not heard nothing official from Norton, I've had the friend who told me about it come back to me and said they can get through again, but I'm not 100% it's fixed, until someone from Norton checks I guess I'll never know. (or I get notified by a friend again)

Yeah, I did the same thing, it doesn't tell me, it just tells me it's 'untested' I'd assume I'll hear soon enough.

When you see the gray icon next to the search results, it indicates that Norton Safe Web has not analyzed that website.  It does not necessarily mean that the site is malicious.

Every month nnnnnn of new website are published and Norton prioritizes testing based on website popularity.
Safe Web does not test those nnnnnn of sites until ownership is verified.
However, if any website owner wants their site verified earlier they need to verify ownership.

In order to get website verified by Norton, website owner needs to update their website with tag, which only owners can do, hence website ownership is verified.

Re: My Website Flagging up - Unknown Reason / Explaination - Drive By Downloads?

I'll already verified ownership by uploading the html file like they ask.

Guess I'll have to wait for an update (notification)
