Yup.  I get the 'Access denied' screen from that site too.  The PlusNet screen invites me to Login to change settings to allow access - but goes nowhere?

Re: DMT Tool blocked

The originally mentioned URL is blocked, but when I use the classification checker it says:
Quote
The URL http://www.2cent.de/dmt/v8/dmt.zip is classified as
Not yet categorized or does not fit into any category

Does that imply 'not categorized' URLs are blocked by default?

To answer my own question it would appear not since the official site is also not categorized, but that is accessible.

Re: DMT Tool blocked

Not categorized zip file banned perhaps?
Maybe a test of a zip file in somebody's webspace which is also 'unclassified'?

The site www.2cent.de ; was blocked because it's in the Known Spyware website list.This list is a  separate list not related to the URL db.
The URL check is related to the URL DB classification only.
We are analyzing the lists constantly and update the sites if necessary to avoid false positive

Re: DMT Tool blocked

Thanks for that explanation. I'll add a note in the FAQs about this.
Are there any other 'hidden' lists? And is a tool provided so that users can check sites against them?

In the original Spyware/Adware blocking message there is a link to eSafe WebWatch service.
In this link you can receive explanation regarding the sites being blocked (different from the URL classification).
Here is the direct link where you can test the
