I noticed the Substack redirect tracker is blocked as phishing:

I also noticed `` was blocklisted as malware by Malwarebytes Web protection:

I suspect these two detections are connected, as is where link.sbstck.com is hosted. However (oddly) when I let Browser Guard continue, I did not get an IP block from MBAM. Likewise, sbstck[.]com is blocked via the IP blocker in MBAM, but not MBG.

This domain is detected by several AVs on VT, and is listed in 1Hosts Xtra. However, I think these are false positives.

The IP is clean.
