Hi, I keep receiving many alerts from sophos that says that a troj/phish-BS has been blocked from accessing my pc. It is weird because I don't remember that I have come across such suspicious website and I believe it is from google because it has the the word "google" in the provided link.

On Geekzone or any other site? There is a discussion already and it seems a false positive.

I see but it wasn't on Geekzone. The link provided is quite weird actually for that fact that it isn't a proper website because I tried to get into it after it was showed on my sophos virus detection board. The words "suspicious website" with the red frame were what showed up.
I think I don't receive the alert any more, thanks for the clarification.

This was confirmed as a false positive. Please see the other discussion.
