Core blocks safe site, according to Norton

http://norton.core/BlockMalware.php?url=www.eazypeazymealz.com/

This site is being blocked by the Core, but when using Norton website to check it, it says it's safe.

BTW (side note): When this site gets cleared, if anyone is interested, awesome recipe....

All: Safeweb shows the site as clean here. I also submitted the site for review at bluecoat, will post the results here when received.

Cheers

I assume this link is for disputing security issues on websites deemed insecure by Norton.

... but, Norton's website says it's safe. There is NO dispute, Norton is the one who needs to decide whether it is REALLY safe or NOT!

Both products are Norton; The Core and the website that shows its security status.

What I'm trying to say is that, if I did not have the Norton Core and just running the Norton AV, it would allow me to connect to that site. THAT kinda worries me, in a way.

Who's right, the Core or the Norton security app?

Symantec Web Filter is not real time. 


In addition to actively crawling and analyzing web sites, Norton Safe Web relies on feedback from users and Norton Community participants. When a drive-by download occurs at a web site, the suspicious URL is automatically reported to Norton Safe Web for analysis. The reported site is rated as unsafe if the analysis confirms that the download is malicious.
To ensure that its site rating accurately reflects the current state of a site, Norton Safe Web performs frequent re-analysis of Web sites. Norton Safe Web employs a site rating aging algorithm which estimates how often the safety of a particular Web site will change. Some of the factors used in this analysis include the site's rating history, the site's reputation and associations, the number and types of threats detected on the site, the number of submissions received from Norton clients, and site traffic. In other words, unsafe sites that are more likely to have been cleaned up are re-analyzed often while those that might take longer to remove detected threats are re-analyzed less frequently. User reviews are also accepted, with contributors ranked by reputation. Should a site owner dispute the ranking of their site, they can submit a request for re-evaluation after completing a validation process. 

Norton Safe Web is not real time.

I hear ya'. 
There is no "right"....there's only report based upon their last analysis.

Re: Core blocks safe site, according to Norton

I understand it takes time, but, it WAS updated 7 days ago, why Norton hasn't updated the status on their safeweb site?

https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=www.eazypeazymealz.com

I'm not going anywhere near that site, as long as my Core blocks it.

I wonder, if I bypass the core and use incognito, on a junk machine running NAV would it go?

BlueCoat being the integral part of Core Security Plus has had its issues concerning conflicting with SafeWeb for some time now. It has been reported and more than once, unfortunately until the Core development team begins working hand in hand with safeweb this will continue.

All: The issue has been resolved with BlueCoat. Core no longer blocks this site. Below is the reply from BC for the site review.

Based on your recommendation and after careful evaluation of the Web content submitted, a Web Content Analyst has recategorized this URL as Restaurants/Dining/Food.

Thank you,
