Avast is showing hubpages as having a Bad Reputation. Can we Help?

    I went, today, to check and see if any of my articles had been plagiarized. What I found was even worse. Avast, my virus protection provider, and one of the largest in the world, leaves a little mark beside each site on google to tell you if it is safe. They indicate that all Hubpages are unsafe and have a bad reputation. Why? How can we change this? I am sure people would avoid our hubs from google if avast is telling them it has a bad rep

    I have submitted my feedback that the website is great with a thumbs up. Can you all please do the same?

    Are you sure its not your browser cfin? I took a look at mine and it seems to be fine, nothing next to it at all.

      It is my virus protection that has an add on for my browser. But there are tens of millions of people with the same one and those people are not going to click on a hub when it shows up on this light.

    This has already been addressed in a recent forum thread. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/121054#post2566914
