Website wrongly blocked by McAfee as pornography

We are developing a website for holiday houses. A friend has just informed me that it is blocked by his corporate firewall software McAfee Web Gateway 7 with the following informations:

URL:Greece holiday houses

URL categories: Pornography

Reputation: Unverified

Obviously there is no pornography on this website.

What can we do to correct this blocking?

Re: Website wrongly blocked by McAfee as pornography

Hi Iakb!

The URL appears to be uncategorized, so MWG most likely fell back to the IP's categorization. This usually happens because the previous owner of the IP might have actually hosted porngraphy. Or you could be on a server which hosts multiple sites and one is categorized as such.

You can submit the URL here: https://www.trustedsource.org/en/feedback/url  for recategorization.

I can do it too, what do you feel it should be categorized as?

Best Regards,

Jon
