Kaspersky antivirus blocks disroot.org

Today (August 8), Kaspersky antivirus is blocking disroot.org as a malicious web site. Not sure about the cause, disroot team, please reach out to them.


Thanks for heads up. We will check what is the reason for this.

Also encounter this with Kapersky Endpoint Protection.
Apparently Kapersky (and also Avast) and Secutec SecureDNS flag the main disroot.org domain/IP as dangerous/malicious as it prolly got on Malware blacklist because of botnet (Botnet C&C Trojan-PSW.Win32.Cryptnot), see
Kaspersky Threat Intelligence Portal

BTW via the kapersky link above you can also file/click button for reanalysis of the site.

I already sent an object to revalidate as user

Got already reply:

URL was removed from blocklist. It will be fixed in the next update. Thank you for your help.

Let’s hope this also ripples through the other services.

Kaspersky should be ok now, verified on their site and virus-total.
Avast still flags it, so also created an appeal for that Submit suspicious URL


BTW, maybe the way to read those reports is that you shouldn’t trust Kaspersky antivirus.
[ In a sense this is stating the obvious since it’s proprietary software. ]
But more seriously, antivirus software is a problem rather than a solution, you’re probably better off without it.
