Website blocked due to a suspicious top level domain (TLD)

I run 2 webservers (abyss) on 2 PCs - both with home weather stations. One is on port 80 and the other on port 8000 - if I access the PC just using my top level domain (i.e. http port 80) via Firefox 74.0 if connects fine but if I try and access the other PC on port 8000 Browser Guard blocks me with the message "Website blocked due to a suspicious top level domain (TLD)". The TLD is the same in both cases so why is it being blocked on port 8000 but not on port 80?

Any suggestions anybody?

Whitelisted theoldschool.info.  Did not follow up yesterday because you said you could reach the site using the domain name.  Today it was blocked. Should be accessible within the hour.

Excellent - thanks. Do you know why it was blacklisted?

It is probably the .info TDL.

We show extreme caution on the non-standard TLDs.  info/cc/xyz, etc.  They get misused way too often.

Hi, 

Not sure what to say,

I just took that screen shot I attached in my last message using Chrome to go to web site, only 15 min ago.

I just went there with FireFox and got the attached.??

Edge lets me in with no issues..

Chrome cache continually makes me unhappy.  Clearing it usually does the trick.

It has been reported that Browser Guard is giving a false positive on https://www.alumknights.info/ with the message "Website blocked due to a suspicious top level domain (TLD)". We ran a VirusTotal.com check on our website and it came up clean.

Could this URL be double-checked and whitelisted if possible?

Thanks,

Dan Jones

While we wait for staff. A note on Website blocked due to a suspicious top level domain (TLD)

Non-standard TLD's (biz/cc/info/xyz/online and so on) are commonly used for malicious purposes.  Malwarebytes err on the side of caution to assure that we are protecting our users. If our users encounter a block, they report it (as you did), it gets tested, and if it is determined to be safe, it gets whitelisted.
