今天點進GOOGLE PLAY 頁面,AVAST卻跳出警示顯示為釣魚網站,這是發生什麼問題嗎?

La agruè sin gasto administrativo a CHrome y Opera; navego sin problemas, de surgir alguno, avisa peligrosidad (es optativo aceptar el riesgo para ver la misma que puede arrastrar virus); hay momentos que automàticamente rechaza (pàgina peligrosa). Para mì es ùtil, se ajusta a criterìos personales.
