    The Magnus post said the simulator was removed on Dec. 1st, right?
    So I guess we're left to conclude that TL isn't updating their defs?
    But you're right in that it isn't only the opt out page being flagged by TL, it is also trojanhunter.com.
    Thanks for shedding some light (some traffic light). ;)

    I've asked Bitdefender over Twitter if they can remove this incorrect detection. I'll post back here if they respond.

    They replied and said they'll fix this. If anyone using TrafficLight can confirm they did, that would be great.

    The detection is still occurring with version 0.1.24 last updated on Dec 19th.
    I'll try to remember to check again later. :)

    Edit in: New TL version 0.1.25 now installed with last update being today, Dec.20th...
    and trojanhunter.com shows this result --> The page you are trying to access contains malware.

    @Magnus: TL last updated on Dec.21st still saying your website contains malware.

    I'm not surprised. Perhaps it's an easy way for them to keep competition down - simply ban their competitor's web site.

    I think TL's solution is just around the corner.

    Probably not the case (giving benefit of the doubt), but the detection is a persistent one, I'll give you that.
    I just checked with TL version last updated on Dec.24th and it's still there.
    I also gave TL feedback via their "share your opinion" feature, and referenced this thread.
    Who knows, maybe they'll come around. :doubt:

    I do believe the issue has been resolved now.
    I'm not getting the red light detection any longer.
    Hope this sticks. :D
