Twitter oauth get token api failing with malware error message


Here is the error message am getting:

The given URL is considered malware /oauth/request_token

If anyone know how to fix it please let me know.


What code are you using? Is there an error code from the Twitter API?


Here is the response: I use Java Spring Social for this:

Caused by: org.scribe.exceptions.OAuthException: Response body is incorrect. Can't extract token and secret from this: '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <error>The given URL is considered malware</error>
	at org.scribe.extractors.TokenExtractorImpl.extract(


here is the site information:

APP ID: 720986



We’re not able to assist with individual and specific app issues here. Have you checked with the Spring Social folks to discover whether they have any similar known issues? I’ve not heard of this error before (that’s not a Twitter API error response that I know of)


Do you think something blocked from twitter side?
