Overly aggressive site blocking?

Seem to be getting an over-ambitious screening of sites.  Are you sure resy.com is a “Harmful Web Site…” worthy of blocking?  I thought it was a restaurant booking app like OpenTable??

 

 

Thanks.

    Hello,

     

    Sorry for my reply. I'm also only F-Secure user (their Home Solutions);

     

    With my own experience (F-Secure SAFE technology preview) -> this URL marked/rated as suspicious-page;

    Based on something -> Freedome blockpage do not trigger different words/reasons for suspicious-rated and harmful-rated websites;


    As potential workaround (or useful step): transfer URL directly to F-Secure Labs with F-Secure SAS:

    https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/labs_global/submit-a-sample#sample-url

     

    where possible to check 'I want to give more details about this sample and to be notified of the analysis results'-option and choose related categories like "Harmless website is blocked; f/p"  -> "Freedome" (or "Freedome related trouble" -> "Harmless website is blocked;f/p");

    it can be also useful -> because you're able to provide mail-address and receive response from F-Secure Labs (maybe with explanation for suspicious-rating);

     

    I able to think that can be many possibilities for such rating (from 'only random' based on autoanalysing to 'previously suspicious activities' under domain/service);

     

    Thanks!
