Blocking symcb.com

Recommended Posts

This morning, many benign sites to which I browse are associated with a popup from MWB blocking a connection to s1.symcb.com. As best as I can tell, this is a similar problem that occurred after a database update in December 2016 that resolved quickly (presumably after another database update)

Is this a dangerous site? If not, can we update the database to whitelist it again?

I have a question, though. I have 4 browsers installed on my system (Firefox, Chrome, Edge and IE) and this morning,  all were getting these blocks when accessing certain sites. I'm wondering why these browsers need to connect to *.symcb.com , a Symantec site. Is MalwareBytes doing this ? Why ? Is MalwareBytes using information stored at the Symantec site ?
