    Hello all, I'm using Malwarebytes antimalware pro with website blocking enabled.

    Recently i've been browsing through this site to download subtitles..

    http://www.tvsubtitles.net/tvshow-55-1.html

    But MBAM blocked it.. Is it an FP or the site is really a threat o_O

    You can check it with URLVoid.

    Never used URLVoid so I checked it and it comes up clean. Thanks for the URLVoid suggestion. It will be helpful in the future.

    Yes, MBAM website blocking doesn't like that site.
    As you may know, you can right-click the MBAM tray icon and choose to add to ignore list.
    Three other reputation checkers (TrafficLight, WOT and McAfee SiteAdvisor) all say it is okay.

    I'm wondering if MBAM sees it as a P2P related website maybe. MBAM has blocked every P2P website I've ever been on and even a lot of sites like Megaupload. I always keep website blocking off anyway, too many FPs.

    Indeed, and that's only the tip of the iceberg.

    After reporting of this false positive and waited for 3 days, but still the website seems to be blocked by MBAM. I had to add it manually to ignore list
