This is a Browser Guard Block. I will Alert the proper team to investigate. There is no need for any further action from you at this time.

Browser Guard is a free browser extension that is also offered by Malwarebytes.  It is separate from our commercial products, in terms of its behavior and also in terms of the teams responsible for it.  The forum that you posted in was for the commercial products.  Many Browser Guard users post here.  The posts get moved to the proper place and all the posts (commercial or free) get taken care of.

The sites have been whitelisted. Please allow 15-30 minutes for changes to take effect.

In both cases, the problem was due to this:

https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2017/09/autoplay-policy-changes

In simple terms, playing audio without that audio being requested by the user is also a method of delivering malware to unsuspecting users.  If Google begins to enforce this policy in their browser in the future, whitelisting will be of no value.
