Why is Symantec blocking access to https://my.pogoplug.com?

I have a Pogoplug device which allows me to access any drives pluged into the device from the Internet by going to the  web site  hxxps://my.pogoplug.com. Symantec has suddently started blocking access to this site stating it is "Malicious".

Since the contents of the site is basically what's on the local drive of the person using it, that makes no sense.  There are no malicious files on my PogoPlug device and if there are malicous files on someone else's Pogoplug device, that doesn't affect me since I can 't access them.

Can someone from Symantec please correct this?

Hi Morac,

Norton Safe Web is showing that there is a threat present in the form of "trojan.zlb". You can view the site safety report at the following location.

http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=https://my.pogoplug.com

You mentioned that this "suddenly" started happening which would indicate that it was compromised since the last time you did not see this issue.

I would suggest that you notify the web site administrator so they can look into it.

ALL users: please do not click on the URL in the original post.

I have also requested the moderator to disable the active link in your post.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.

Allen

Norton Safe Web reports that Trojan Zlob has been found on that site.  Norton can't fix the issue until the site owner cleans the site.

I can tell that you must have started much earlier.

The problem is that that "site" isn't really a site, but is a way to interface to locale drives on a user's home network.  One person must have had a trojan on his home computer. 

It is akin to blocking the entire Norton Backup Service if one person backed up a virus from his PC.
