Opera Browser Issue Warning for my Site Page

Hello Webmasters,

I have Debt related website (I'm affiliate) from last 4 yrs, well placed with all major search engine with my "keyword"

Today while browsing site using opera browser, I found that opera puts WARNING MESSAGE:o for ONE page from my site

The page you are trying to open has been reported as fraudulent. It will likely attempt to trick you into sharing personal or financial information. Opera Software strongly discourages visiting this page.

As mine is affiliate site, I just forward the visitors with main Program Site, I never collect any information about my site visitors, even my program operator have VERY STRICT PRIVACY policy that they even do not share any information about visitors.

How to over come this problem and convince opera staff that my site is INNOCENT & never every engaged in such fraudulent activities :(

Please advise me.


PS: No Such Problem with FireFox

Does Opera give any warnings on the main program site? Contact them to see if they know what is going on.

If it's just you, I would rename the page and put it up and see if the renamed page does it.

Hello Friends,

The following reply I get from the Netcraft.com

The page has been incorrectly classified and Netcraft has unblocked it. New information will propagate in a short time.

I think such mistakes is Bad shot for SMALL Sites, as webmaster requires lot of works & time (some time few years) to earn FAITH/FAME & just because of such si**y mistakes from 3rd party solutions site may face hard time.

Hope they will take care with next time & with other sites too.

For those who are following along - Opera uses two sources for their anit-fraud, or phishing, blacklist - and a third source for their malware blacklist.

Opera sends the domain name of the requested page to the server, which checks it against phishing blacklists compiled by Netcraft [netcraft.com] and PhishTank [phishtank.com], and malware blacklists compiled by Haute Secure [hautesecure.com].


Anyone with a false positive in Opera for either phishing or malware needs to work with these third parties to get the status changed. The information for how to do that is available from those three websites.
