    I notice Avira's web guard blocks certain URLs. I have a couple of questions:

    Is the list static and comes down to the client with pattern definitions or is it dynamic and queries URLs in real-time?

    How do I report false positives? I can send a suspect file but I see no obvious way to report a suspected false positive?

    This is Avira Professional 2012, latest SP's and everything.

    Thanks.

    You can use this link. Make sure to check mark "Suspected False Positive (Not Malware)".
