    I dont understand whay is

    Web page:
    [noparse]warez-bb.org[/noparse]


    on the list of websites with potentially dangerous contento_Oo_O?
    Before i instaled eset i never download with oder files any virus from this web sites. This is one of most popular forum on the world, can anyone say me how to fix . I read in eset smart security help ,Web access protection-HTTP
    -Blocked / excluded addresses this:
    The HTTP checking setup lets the user create user-defined lists of Blocked and Excluded URL (Uniform Resource Locator) addresses.


    Both dialogs contain the buttons Add, Edit, Remove and Export, enabling the user to easily manage and maintain the lists of specified addresses. If an address requested by the user is included in the list of blocked addresses, it will not be possible to access that web page. On the other hand, addresses in the list of excluded addresses are accessed with no checking for malicious code. In both lists, the special symbols * (asterisk) and ? (question mark) can be used. The asterisk substitutes any character string, and the question mark substitutes any symbol. Particular care should be taken when specifying excluded addresses, because the list should only contain trusted and safe addresses. Similarly, it is necessary to ensure that the symbols * and ? are used correctly in this list.

    and i suppose ,i can insert url that i wont to block or dont ,or i can remove blocked url from the list. I didnt block any web adress,but i still cant go to this web,and also dont see any block url in advanced setup.
    i hope so you understand me ,and sorry for my bad english. help pls.

    A discussion about warez not being potentially dangerous? Hmmm, considering most warez tools host trojans in them I think it's pretty justified. Then again it might be an IP block not a URL block that unintentionally got it blocked. I'll let an ESET representative shed some light on the matter.

    You don't need to turn off HTTP checking, all you have to do is to exclude that adress.
    Go to Setup> Web Access Protection> HTTP, HTTPs> Adress Management then add that adress to the List of adresses excluded from filtering. You need to enter it this way: w ww.warez-bb.org* to exclude all the site and not only the main page.

    Nod32 blocks some sites by default, thats why you need to add exclusions if you want to visit some sites with dangerous content. So, do this at your own risk.

    Its a warez forum, so it could contain trojans etc..
    I think that is why ESET blocked it. :)

    It's not a matter of could contain trojans. ESET don't block anything unless it definitely has malware.
