Hello,

It was the IP that was blocked. Just unblocked it since it has been cleaned up. It'll take an hour or so for the update to go out.

Thanks for reporting.

Great, thank you, i was a bit worried when i saw the detection so if you don't mind could you tell me why the domain is named "instagram.flhe5-1.fna.fbcdn.net" and why was the ip blocked and what was the ip from? If you could answer those questions it would help a lot :)

Hello,

Sorry for delay in reply. I didn't see the notification.

Facebook owns Instagram so fbcdn is FaceBook Content Delivery Network. So ... when you were scrolling through your feed, a video probably tried to load which is stored on one of many fbcdn servers.
The IP is the IP of instagram.flhe5-1.fna.fbcdn.net. Why was it blocked? Not sure. Not seeing anything on it when I checked, nor today.
