    Hello,

    I'd need an advice:

    hxxp://www.remoteutilities.com/

    receive a block from the Web filter..........I'm a good to unlock or is it better not?

    on the other hand

    hxxp://www.remoteutilities.it goes smoothly without any block

    Thanks in advance

    Dr.Web URL category
    known infection source

    Edit: Though it's not really new it seems, from URLvoid...

    There may not be something "bad" on the website, but BrightCloud's info on when the site were registered does not match. If the age is the reason for the block I mean:doubt:

    It may have nothing to do with it, but several AV's detect their Remote Utilities for Windows software as a PUP (remote admin)...

    I doubt it can be a PUP thingy

    Any URL I visit goes through 7 huge databases before the site ever displays in our browsers, and none of them flag it.

    Router Malware DNS Filter - Clear.
    MBAM Web Filter - Clear.
    Avira Web Filter - Clear
    Adblock Malware Domains - Clear
    Admuncher 'extras' - Clear
    Peerblock Malware (1.9 billion IPs) - Clear
    Opera Malware Check - Clear

    Conclusion - False Positive from Brightcloud.

    Look like Brigthcloud takes the "updated" date as reference. I think it makes sense as meanwhile the website could have passed to a different owner (good or evil).
