Sophos doesn't like this site....
« on: 28. September 2012, 17:02:44 »
I attempted to access the Manjaro website from work the other night. Couldn't get to it at all. This is what I got instead:

Code: [Select]
High Risk Website Blocked
Location: forum.manjaro.org Access has been blocked as the threat Mal/HTMLGen-A has been found on this website.

This is generated by Sophos. Hope its wrong.....

Well, I access this site form work on occasion, and have had no problems. Not sure what anti-virus is used, but certainly no messages or blocks on any kind.

Sophos is known for some false positives, they've even flagged sites like amazon before.
