Sky Broadband Shield and site blocking


[link to this post]
 
I noticed recently some torrent downloads had stopped and a few sites we not accessible. I logged in to Sky Shield and set it to 'off'. All seems ok now.
Just thought some may have the same problem accessing sites and wondered why they can't.

Sites probably got blacklisted under malware category. Ie cracked software that has had a few unwanted goodies added

Sky lists sites that they have blocked.

Get a cheap VPN, use private sites only, get a cheap seedbox and FTP everything and dont forget that essential tin foil hat smile
