avg internet security is blocking this website

Posted under General

Oh, you'd be surprised at how much loli content is automatically treated like such.

But honestly, I have no technical knowledge as for why does that happen, my apologies.

Welcome to the new internet, where the companies that own the digital space make your morality for you!

mine isnt... but its free so maybe thats why?

had a closer look at the message, looks like AVG sided with the Internet Watch Foundation so it's pretty much like zx29b said, all hail Big Brother (in the non oniiii-chaaaaan sense :P)

it's just a blocklist so adding sites to exceptions helps, but their draconian privacy policy makes me wonder if things are being logged so the obvious solution of "delete AVG" seems to be the way to go

My recommendation is to remove AVG or any other third party antivirus and just use Windows Defender(built-in). Keep Windows/programs updated, follow best practices/common sense and you'll be fine.

Windows is generally insecure due to all of the bloat in it giving it an enormous profile. Debuan (not Debian) is a good operating system for security. Spoof your fingerprints, run TOR, block scripts, and avoid the big social media sites. You'll never even sniff a virus. Besides, as Cogs said, viruses are less of a concern now. Botnets that use your electricity to mine crypto are much more prevalent and can be defeated in much the same way.
