Possible false flag via Avast while using Opera

  • Description: Here you will describe what the problem is with the most details as possible but being objective and concise.

    Steps to reproduce: Here you will show what people should do to try to reproduce the problem.
    This happens pretty randomly. While I'm surfing the web. Had this happen on a couple of sites.

    Actual result: What do you see, what happens when you do the steps you have listed above
    I have a picture of it.

    Expected result: What should be the correct behaviour when performing those steps

    I should be able to go onto said site without Avast throwing me a false flag.

    OS: Your version of Windows (10, 7, 8, etc)


    URL: If the problem is with a page, post its address here

    It's random.

    Version of Opera: What Opera version you are using

    Version: 43.0.2442.806 (PGO)

  • Yep, it's probably a false positive. You should report it to Avast.

  • An API call? Sound's like it is blocking Opera's own phishing or malware checks (not sure which).

  • Check this topic in Avast forums.
