I keep getting this message when running Tixati.
Feature: Online Threat Prevention
The page "Website URL' has been detected with suspicious activity. It is not recommended to continue browsing this website.
Accessed by: tixati.exe
But I don't see any sites loading in tixati and the tixati browser is not active.
So, what's going on? Is my program infected? No other alerts are coming up in Bitdefender.

I ran a manual update on Tixati and the alert did not appear, so I don't think it's that.
But I don't think Tixati runs ads...does it? I've never seen it run ads.
It could be a misconfiguration on my part, but I don't see anything about the site in the settings.
Tixati will connect to UDP and HTTP/HTTPS trackers. HTTP will, without a doubt, be considered a "website access". HTTPS less likely to be. In a broad sense, "website access" can actually mean "this program makes a sends traffic to an IP that we have on a blacklist." And in case of Tixati/BitTorrent it is certainly a false-positive. Bittorrent clients can't have malicious activity. You either download or upload. Doesn't matter the reputation of the IP address of the peer or tracker.
PS: Technically if there's a Remote Code Execution vulnerability in a client, it can be used for bad stuff. The chance of this is miniscule.
