Malwarebytes Browser Guard for Firefox v2.3.20 is currently blocking hxxps://www[.]wordplays.com (a site for solving crossword puzzle clues) "due to riskware".  Have visited this site previously without a problem but I'm not sure if this is a false positive or a legitimate detection.

In future, should I be reporting possible false positives for Malwarebytes Browser Guard in this board or over in https://forums.malwarebytes.com/forum/123-website-blocking/? I didn't see anything logged in my Malwarebytes Premium v4.5.6 detection history for this particular website block.

I noticed that VirusTotal report has a Status 401, and when I check my blocked wordplays.com URL with the Securi website checker at https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/ I see a similar "Unable to Scan Your Site: 401 Unauthorized" warning.  Could that be the reason why Malwarebytes Browser Guard is throwing a Riskware warning?
