aljazeerah.info false positive

"www.aljazeerah.info" is being blocked by MBG. it wasn't being blocked before, not until very recently.

i am just bringing it to your attention. it's possible that the website has been hacked and so now there is a problem with it. i don't know. but the website has been around for many years and is owned by a college professor in atlanta, georgia, USA, and i have never had a problem with it before.

thanks porthos. there is just one jpg image-file at "al-mousa.net." see the image that i posted.

i downloaded the jpg image-file in question and scanned it with "windows defender" and "MBAM" and neither of those flagged it.

i also uploaded the jpg image-file to "virustotal" and none of the av-program's there flagged it:

so, i believe that "al-mousa.net's" being flagged is a false-positive, also.

Sorry.  I responded to the title of the post as well as the initial thread.  You dropped the second one in later.  Unfortunately, that block will remain.  It is a Malwarebytes Premium block for a trojan, specified below:
