I use a program called Weather Clock by RespectSoft and the 'check for updates' feature of this software is blocked by MWB which is a bit of a nuisance.

I checked on

http://hosts-file.net/?s=www.respectsoft.com

to see what was listed and the only IP shown for RespectSoft is 88.214.197.206

It claims there is also 11 other sites on this IP but when you click on the number 11 to get further details, it takes you to this page :-

http://hosts-file.net/?s=88.214.197.206&view=matches

and NONE of the sites listed there have the IP 88.214.197.206 so I don't understand why this is being blocked.

I also checked the history for IP 88.214.197.206 and according to the info on that site, it has only ever been associated with respectsoft

http://hosts-file.net/?s=88.214.197.206&view=history

If it's never been associated with any other site, why should it be blocked ? Any ideas ?

(Sorry for the CODE boxes, I didn't want to post clickable links in case it was frowned upon)

The 11 that you saw, actually refers to matches on the CNET, not matches on the IP itself. Sorry if this is not clear.

This particular IP however, is on an IP range that belongs to a known criminal gang (part of the Russian Business Network), which is why it is blocked;
