In fact, blocking all of .biz is a bit heavy handed. Much though I like this new tool, it's a very blunt instrument.

This is a Browser Guard Block. I will Alert the proper team to investigate.

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.

Here are some of the reasons why it's safer to block by default and remove the block if found to be safe.

Typically no one has the time and resources to go out and daily scan for bad sites on the Web.
