    Smoothwall - Top Phishing Country problem

    I am in the US. Recently the ".us" country has been included in the "Top Phishing Country" category.

    I am not saying we should not be there but is there a way to exclude a country from being blocked by Top Phishing Country? Being in the US that is a critical domain. I do not want to allow all traffic to the ".us" domain - just prevent it from being blocked by the Top Phishing Group.

    I have unchecked the category and am working but I would like to keep the protection this category provides.

    Thanks for any help you can prove,

    Scott

    Hi,

    Support have seen this issue today and yesterday for both ".nl" and ".us" TLDs. Presumably there has been a surge in Phishing volume from those domains in recent weeks, pushing them up the ranks.

    We do apply some exceptions however, and those TLDs have been added to the list. Everything should be back to normal by tomorrow.

    Cheers!
