bad web site blocking

5 posts in this topic

I just installed version 10 pro security today and have found quite a few web pages being blocked by the shop & bank safely online.

canadian weather network pc app:
[url="http://www.theweathernetwork.com/weatherapps/pc"]http://www.theweathe.../weatherapps/pc[/url]

the webpage won't load at all, you cannot download the setup file, you need to uncheck shop & bank safely to download it
Once the app is installed, the app cannot connect to server unless shop & bank safely is unchecked
the app is weather.exe

2 additional pages being reported:
[url="http://www.swtor-spy.com/datacrons"]http://www.swtor-spy.com/[/url]
[url="http://www.swtorface.com/p/swtor-companion-list.html"]http://www.swtorface.com/[/url]


Is it blocking the app & web pages because they contain advertisements? Edited by Gabbie1977

The pages are not stopped because they contain ads. If that was a condition, it would be impossible to visit most pages.

Do you have definition version 11791? That is the version I have and I can visit those pages.

You are correct, after i updated that the latest definition version the 2 swtor web pages worked.

I have attached a screenshot of the weather network app page being displayed as blocked.
the installation file is theweathernetwork.exe

I also use google chrome 18.0 the latest version.

I have also attached 2 before and after screenshots of when its turned on and when its turned off to chose you the difference in the application itself. Edited by Gabbie1977

I think, Lavasoft will investigate why pelmorex.com and the program is stopped when they are back after the weekend.

Hi Gabbie1977,

Thanks for your report. The web page blocks are false positives and will be fixed in an upcoming update.
