Joke website listed as malicious

I've made a joke website which makes fun of Indian tech support scammers, it also includes one of their fake scan pop-ups, but lists my Skype number and a recording of my voice.

Obviously the code is detected as malicious but it's not malicious really, just a joke.

Am I able to get this unblacklisted?

URL is wirus . co.uk

Also has a video of me pranking a tech support scammer at the bottom.

SWBPL is one of the threat types in SafeWeb which is based on telemetry which we collect from 3rd party vendor feeds. Since these sites are classified based on the static data, SWBPL is prone to a few FPs.

For second opinion choose URL at VirusTotal and/or submit to Symantec for review analysis > see > How to report false positives

Chances are it is the 'fake pop up' causing the detection. Joke or not, it is a behavior that a security product is going to block.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

The verification process won't work for this website, but works for my other website?

Just says it can't verify the Wirus website. The HTML file is there.
