Request for Re-evaluation and Removal of Suspicious Detection for

Dear McAfee Support Team,

I am writing to request your assistance in re-evaluating and removing the suspicious detection for the website

The website has been flagged as suspicious for potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) on McAfee, but we have thoroughly reviewed its security and found no such indication.

We have already conducted a security review of the website, including a check of executables files in the file manager hosting, and no PUPs were found. Furthermore, we would like to emphasize that is a website for a thesis project and should not have any PUPs.

Therefore, we kindly request your team to re-evaluate the website and remove the suspicious detection for We believe that this is a false positive and that the website is safe and secure for our users.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Please let us know if you require any further information or assistance from our side.

Best regards,
