Anti-Virus Blocks Site

Anti-Virus Blocks Site

I recently uploaded a client's site to their hosting account.

 

Since then every time I go to the site, my anti-virus (Avast) goes off stating there is malware on the site.

 

I have checked the site through Securi and the hosting provider and neither come back with any issues.

 

I have even talked to Avast to see what the issue was but they were of no help.

 

I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like this before.

 

The URL is http://www.waterbridge.net  built on Magento ver. 1.9.2.4

 

Any help would be fantastic.

The website doesn't seem to be flagged by Google Safe Browsing or any other blacklists. 

 

What is Avast's response when you contacted them?

Re: Anti-Virus Blocks Site

Avast's response was useless. They wouldn't tell me what the cause was, just told me to flag it as a false positive.

Flagging it as false positive may be your only recourse for now. Smiley Frustrated

 

I've glanced through the website's source code and there doesn't seem to be anything suspicious at all. 

 

Do you have any embeds or links (like JavaScripts) to third-party websites (I didn't find any while glancing through the source code)? This is usually the main source of any malware problems.
