Harmful web site http://www.youtube.com/ blocked


Yesterday the computer using F-Secure SAFE blocked www.youtube.com


Today the computers using F-Secure Internet Security blocked www.youtube.com


I tried to ping www.youtube.com to see if it was DNS hijack, the IP belongs to Google. I used Google Chrome and type m.youtube.com which I bypassed the block. But I cannot bypass the block using IE.


What is going on?

    Looks like that my installation do not rate this URL as harmful.


    Does your experience still about such view?

    If not - maybe it was temporary false positive detection (since even someone as Quttera(?!) do mark URL as malicious too).

    If yes - maybe can be some other suggestions.

    Hello Nevertheless

    I can log in https://www.youtube.com, but I used the address with +s = https.
    Does it matter?
    Was it so, that you were watching a certain video, when harmful comment appeared?
    Or did you intend to begin watching? Perhaps some video is harmful.
    And youtube-application is ok.

    My thoughts,

    I can log into youtube, but I used website address in form:
    https (with s).
    I don't know, does it matter.
    When the harmful comment appeared?
    Did you Nevertheless watch video or going to watch?
    Logging in? Perhaps a certain video is harmful, not youtube.
    Or temporary disorder, as Ukko mentioned.
