Security warning from router


[link to this post]
 
My Asus RT-AC68U has Trend Micro AIProtection in its firmware. It is reporting that it has blocked a malicious phishing site and which machine it was on. Only thing is I dont recognise the web address so cant be a link or typed url. I have an automated tester running but at the times it runs dont coincide with Trend Micro blocking the site.

Anyone know how to track this down?

It's possibly content embedded in another website you visited where the legitimate website has been compromised.

You might find reference to it in your browser's history.

I'm not sure how good Trend's protection is but some security products just base their block on the IP address of sites with malicious content. If the server with that IP address hosts other legitimate and non-compromised websites they inadvertantly get blocked too.

What's the address of the site it blocked? Make sure you post it in such a way that TBB doesn't automatically hyperlink it. I'll have a poke around. Or send me a private message.

Thanks Sarah. It's "t dot businessov dot com". Classed as a phising site by TM and it appeared in my log a couple of days running but nothing since.

Nothing in history apart from a google search I did on the domain.
