    I received a link to a web page (an mp3 file) on -largedocument.com, but NOD32 denied me access.

    I don't believe it was the specific web page at that site that is the problem because I tried to access the site using the url alone and received the same Access Denied alert, "The web page is on the list of websites with potentially dangerous content."

    I did not find any negative comments regarding the site anywhere and even WOT seems to think it's okay. A search for "largedocument" at eset.com (and here) yielded nothing.

    Comments?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    File hosting sites are sometimes used to distribute malware, so it is possible malicious files were uploaded to the site, which resulted in the site being blocked when they were downloaded.

    I tried accessing the web site by its home page and it was not blocked, so perhaps the malicious files have been removed.

    Are you still having trouble downloading your file(s)?

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
