    Hi there,
    My site, http://alucida.biz, is being blocked by at least one company’s firewall. Can anyone shed any light on why that’s happening? There’s no questionable content on the site!

    Thanks,
    RSB

    If you are on shared hosting, your IP address could be compromised because of other sites on the server.  You may be getting blocked because of other users on the shared server.

    It could also be an issue with the companies firewall settings.

    It really could be a variety of things.

    Contact your host.

    In case it’s useful for others, here’s how I resolved this:

    The user who was getting blocked sent me the error message he was receiving:

    Security risk blocked for your protection

    I sent an email to suggest@websense.com. One of their researchers responded in just a few minutes saying they had reviewed and reclassified my site, and that this would be reflected in the next update of their database publication.
