    FP site block

    This was listed as a reputation block - what triggered that, I don't know. It is also one of those cases where Sucuri is not always a very good system for verification - they list a whole lot of errors when they receive a 403 response, which is caused by the WAF blocking the direct request that they are running... Oh well...

    FP site block

    OK - I get that. However, this is a site that has had 12,000 visits a month on average, with a high of over 70,000. The site has been there for 14 years, though there have been both host changes over the years as well as backend software changes. Seems suspect that it would be considered ligthy-accessed, or new. No idea what the "niche" status would be either... (BTW - radio propagation? Specific bands for general or personal use?) tnx - Kris

    FP site block

    This is strange... Browser Guard is blocking https://www.silknaturals.com while MB Premium which is also monitoring traffic does not block. Nothing shows up with Virustotal either... It gets truly frustrating that sites get blocked without any clear indication as to why, and no place to verify what is the cause of the block. As such, there is no way to independently verify if it is safe to bypass the block, or if there should be one there at all. The complete and utter randomness of when and how this happens is truly frustrating - in the time I have used the products, I t
  4. OK - so the file is on their site... I still question the logic of blocking the entire domain for a single file... Note that I have no affiliation with the site other than trying to go there and get information on a product that I have... Kris
  5. A single file on the domain? Or is that even on that domain? I see where it is referring to a keygen, but I have no idea where that is found - VT does not show the origin site. Even then, I have to question the idea of blocking an entire domain unless the site is a source of a drive-by download, or is comprised mainly of malicious content. For a single file to be the cause of a block seems a tad bit excessive if it requires knowledge of where the file is specifically... This seems like the kind of a situation where informing the domain owner would be ideal to resolving, since it i
  6. Yet another apparent FP - tecknetonline.com Virustotal: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/0cbe5aa2d1e244568479e2e175397db66f984e6aee4cb17927af3de1e26253d3/detection Seems to me that "Riskware" should not block an entire domain even if there is some there - it should block the actual program that is shown to be problematic... This seems like a bit of an overreach... Kris Seem
  7. It appears that Untroubled.org as a whole is being blocked; Virustotal comes up clean on the site: This is a page: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/c17885174580a1fd407c1d0523d667d1426e279f5c11341b468f168d0172d6c4/detection And the root of the site: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/7afd0a370aa9e98e70d3d5536a3b7c701e9f9cfeed12016b91f52ed350a866d5/detection
  8. Sorry - but this one did not clear with the whitelisting either... Still showing up as blocked in both the app and the browser extension, just as the Cox site is..

  10. I can't find any reason for this to be blocked - can you verify please and indicate what kind of riskware is this referencing, or if none, why is the FP there... covid-19supplies.net TNX Kris
  11. Whitelisted? This is 5 hours after your whitelisting:

    TLD block

    Thank you. I assumed that you are not the person who decided upon such a policy, but obviously I do not have any idea as to who did make that policy, or how to contact them. It would stand to reason that somebody did come up with this idea, and that it also stands to reason (from simply reading through some of the topics here) that the policy is not only causing issues for me, but for a number of others as well. As to the domain level unblock vs the single host... I simply sent an image of what I was presented, with what I thought was reasonably clear in describing that the idea of

    TLD block

    Just the one, or a wildcard under that domain? Looking at other addresses, I see that it is just the single host - which is insane... While this is our corporate domain, and thus has several hosts internally that are not externally accessible, there are also a number of hosts that are designed to be accessed from the outside world. A single host being whitelisted is a backward process; you would not go and blacklist an entire .COM TLD, or a .FI, or even a .CX, and then provide whitelisting to a restricted number of hosts. While I can understand that there is a whole rash of bad ac

    TLD block

    So - came across another TLD block that is an issue, and a further issue in that the information presented to the user is vague and misleading.. The initial wording makes perfect sense to people who have a background in networking/IT. To they lay person, it means nothing. The description below also does not say anything about what a TLD actually is. The problem that I have with this is that the wording makes it seem to lay person that the website that they are trying to visit is suspicious, not just that you block the entirity of the BIZ domain by default. While I have seen a l
  15. So - I was attempting to go and take a look at the webpage of a hotel - www.augustlodge.com which resolves to As you can imagine (since I'm here) the site was blocked. I came to the site here to find a lookup tool that would indicate which sites are *currently* listed as blocked, and why - and to my surprise did not find one. I hope that is due to my inability to search fully, and that you do have a lookup tool for sites which would indicate the status and the reason for that status. I realize that I technically *can* put into place an exception, based on the fact th
