eSafe prevents access to site h1.ripway.com

I'm unable to access the URL http://h1.ripway.com/AnonEmoose6/FireFox/. I get a PlusNet page saying "Access to the site you are trying view is currently restricted by your PlusNet content control settings. " However although I'm in the trial, I haven't set any surf controls and when I feed the URL to Aladdin it tells me the classification is just Communication Services.
Any ideas why I can't access this site? Can others in the trial? My AVGFree link checker gives the site a clean bill of health.

Works for me, but I'm only on the Malware profile.

Re: eSafe prevents access to site

It's blocked for me on Family Safe, though I can't see any reason it should be from the classification or from security protection.
I think we'll have to query this with Aladdin.

You will have chosen a profile (Malware, Family or Office Safe) when you volunteered for the trial. At the moment users have to raise a ticket through the trials link to get this changed, but the eSafe Agent due for beta release next month will allow users to do that themselves.

Hi
This site used to host many exploits and spywares / malwares.
We will review this site again and will update if necessary.
Cheers

Re: eSafe prevents access to site h1.ripway.com

But the classification just says "Communication Services" (which isn't listed in our profiles) and the Webwatch security protection search is clear.
Does the following comment …

… imply there is another list it could be on?

Hi,
Without disclosing to much information, i can only say there are other methods of malware detection.
Some of the methods are used to strip bad content from the web page, and some prevent access to sites who are known to be a malware hosting sites.
