I was browsing Google Images and I clicked on an image to enlarge it (I did not go onto the linked site, just previewed the image) and I got a detection for a website block of one of the websites linked to the image beside one I clicked on.

I'm trying to figure out why Malwarebytes blocks so many IPs when browsing through Google Images, it's a hotbed for IP blocks. I understand the pics all lead to different sites, but why does Malwarebytes block an IP address if the website hasn't even been visited yet??? I haven't tried Bing or Yahoo's images search engines, but I'd imagine they act the same.
