Hello,

 

I am also only an F-Secure user.  And my experience, usually, is about home beta F-Secure (so, maybe stable F-Secure or Business F-Secure solutions with another ratings).

 

Some of false positives (!? likely) from my collection:

Adult category is added to likely unrelated websites (one is bar/pub/restaurant - what is possible to rate as something else rather than adult maybe; especially, when Alcohol-category is introduced; another is someone's Wordpress blog):

https://cocksandcows.dk/
http://mikeadcock.com

**bleep**’s & Cows  bar and Mike Adcock blog.

 

-- F-Secure Community decided to BleepIt bar too.

 

I also found that F-Secure rating does not like Adcock surname at all. Most of random checks against indexed pages are about someone's website (Alison, Anthony, Bryan, Carolyn, Kathleen, ... Adcock) or some companies as health-care?!/design?!/business?!/..anything - where Adcock is own of owners (or part of company's name). All of them with "Adult content"-category rating.

 

I do not know what is wrong with them.

 

// little addition: not all (after today's doublecheck) - but many. while most of them are likely false positive anyway.

F-secure, here's a tip for you.... if the site contains medical business or laboratory related stuff, it's most likely not adult content or gambling related....

Hi victor.

It seems that the false positive problem has not gotten any better.

In fact I had to hire new employee to whitelist all the false positives. She'll continue posting false positives here.

 

I also tried to use the same case to report multiple false positives over longer period of time, but that does not seem to be possible, since f-secure closes the case, and apparrently it's then unpossible to reply via email.

Hello,

Alleged file and website false alarm cases need to be submitted at this URL, you instantly receive an automatic response with ticket ID and the usual time of re-evaluation result is just under 3 hours:

I looked at that Wikipedia article and I have a theory: around the middle of the page, there is a photo insert of an unfolded pink punch tape roll. I would guess the image analysis tool mistook that sight for pantsu, thus classifying the webpage as adult content.

 

( By the way, a  long time ago, photos of fire service trucks were the favourite source of "pornography classification" false alarms in a high-end british gateway content filter. Nowadays, the AI computer in Tesla e-cars can correctly identify and follow fire trucks, so we can't deny that progress exists: https://old.reddit.com/r/teslamotors/comments/bi8j85/following_a_fire_engine_with_tesla_autopilot/ )
