VIPRE - "Bad Web Site Exceptions"
« on: 14. April 2012., 09:40:10 »
I want to inform you that vipre internet security web filtering prevents visiting this site (http://scforum.info) . It displays following message

VIPRE has determined that the site

you are trying to visit contains potentially harmful or objectionable content.

 

To proceed to this site: In VIPRE, open

"File/Settings/Firewall" and add the URL to

"Bad Web Site Exceptions..."


so i think you should contact vipre about it. This site is safe according to McAfee Site advisor and avast web rip.

Samker: First of all sorry for my bad English

JasonR: No problem, I'll be glad to assist you.

Samker: FYI, I'm administrator at one Tech forum and one of our registered member report us that Vipre Internet Security block access to site.

JasonR: http://kb.gfi.com/articles/SkyNet_Article/VIPRE-is-blocking-a-website-I-wish-to-visit?retURL=%2Fapex%2FSupportHome&popup=true

Samker: Ok thank you very much, really great support. :)

Samker: hmmm... this is not what I'm looking for

Samker: I would like to know reason why is http://scforum.info

Samker: blocked and to resolve that

Samker: how to check why Vipre blocks access to site and to resolve that problem ?

JasonR: I see. Have you the 2nd step?

Samker: Yes but still site isn't available without additional settings...

JasonR: Try to turn off the web filter

Samker: Can you confirm me that SCforum.info isn't on your "blacklist" of blocked domains ?

JasonR: On the Vipre screen, Click on file > settings > Firewall settings then uncheck the web filter.

Samker: Can you confirm me that SCforum.info isn't on your "blacklist" of blocked domains ?

JasonR: What we can do is to report this to http://www.sunbeltsecurity.com/blockedsite/ as a false positive since the Vipre firewall might think it has malicious content.

Samker: That is what I'm looking for... :)

Samker: Please submit our site for "unblocking" if that is reason for this issue...

JasonR: Click on the following link: http://www.sunbeltsecurity.com/blockedsite/

JasonR: Sure thing.

Samker: Thanks, as I already say you have really good customer support and this will provide really good review...

Samker: Best Regards,

Samker: Samker

JasonR: You are most welcome.                      

JasonR: Is there anything else that I can assist you with?

Samker: This will be enough... ;)

Yes really a great support. finally after 27 lines of conversation, he understood the issue. By the way, issue was not resolved till now. As you already informed gfi software about issue, i think we should wait at-least 48hrs before registering new complain about same issue. I will check it again after 24hrs and it problem is not solved then i would register a new complain.
