Dr. Web Classify it as Unwanted Website.

Edit: So far, I count 20 detections in total (including VT ones) as of right now.

Reported to Cisco Talos again with more details this time. If a major threat intelligence like Cisco detects it, then Google/MS might block this site at some point.

Kaspersky needs to get a better policy with fake stores sooo much of it as of lately it kinda is a security threat to the user. All the other vendors added detection but for the first time ever i see kaspersky being a slug.


It's simply because Kaspersky doesn't block fake/scam shopping sites. It's not in their policy. There is nothing more to it. They are probably afraid of blocking legit shopping sites by mistake, which could cost Kaspersky money. But not blocking fake store would cost users their money.
Most other vendors are not worried of it. You just have to show them the proof that the shopping site is fake and they'll block it.
This particular site doesn't have or inject any malicious code while ordering, so it doesn't fall into Kaspersky's "Data Loss and Threats Protection" category. Vendors like Avast has very specific "Scam:Store" category, Bitdefender has "Fraud" category, most vendors would put it under "Phishing". Kaspersky doesn't have a category for scam/fake shopping websites.

Avast/avg just incorporated a fake website shield in their product not too long ago. Not sure how it works but has anyone had good luck with it?

I agree with you. I have tried to make my case about fake shopping sites to them 4 times near the end of 2022 and all I got was similar responses to the ones I shared above. I even wrote a harsh reply to them the last time but that is something I shouldn't have done as I'm just talking to employees who are simply following their company policies.
I see that @harlan4096 has written them back and waiting for a response. I think he'll receive a similar response but a change in policy would be a better outcome for Kaspersky customers.

Both detect it now (check post 39 & 41). I don't know if this was due to website being reported by me & other MT members, or if it was automated. VT still doesn't have Avast/AVG detections. I checked VT scan on 9th of Jan and it had zero detections.
Edit: Wait is Fake website shield different from their usual detections?

Update: Just received an update, Cisco Talos denied changing reputation. :(

I got the same answer, I didn't insist with them.
Quite disappointed that they didn't block it.

Cisco changed reputation from "Neutral" to "Untrusted".
