False-Positive phishing alert reported by antivirus software

in #hivebuzz4 days ago

Since yesterday, many of you who use AVG or AVAST as an antivirus solution have reported receiving phishing alerts related to the site https://hivebuzz.me.

Unfortunately, this is a very annoying false positive! Our website is safe and secure!

We immediately reported this error to both software vendors. So far, only AVG has reacted by confirming its mistake:

The good news is that they have already taken steps to fix it.

We do not collect any user information

We want to reassure you: the HiveBuzz site does not collect any information from users. You don't even have to log in as a Hive user.

It is very unfortunate that this incident happened and that it also disrupted your user experience with the various front-ends that display information obtained through the HiveBuzz API, such as the badges that you obtained.

Once again, our team reacted swiftly and we hope that this incident will be fixed soon at Avast and that it will not happen again. In any case, we are ready to react to it as quickly as we have done.

The Hivebuzz Team.

This sucks, Seem like it is common with these places for many crypto related products.

Hope they fix it. Would more people reporting it is safe help?

Thank you for your help proposal @skylinebuds.
Not sure if it will be effective, but you can give it a try.

I had that issue also, but it only ever occurred when on hive.blog, not on peakd my primary access to Hive. So I pretty much ignored it.

Guess it's because peakd only consume HiveBuzz API when you go to the badges tab

AVG is free and not tht good it has many vulns I don't know why it is calling anything else a sec risk when this software is a sec risk itself.

Agree 😭

Thanks for putting out the update.

Thanks for dealing with the matter promptly. I appreciate that.
