Website wrongly blocked by McAfee

I run a website dedicated to the late film composer, John Barry. A friend has just advised me that "it is blocked by our corporate firewall software McAfee Web Gateway 7."  He added:

URL: http://johnbarry.org.uk/

URL categories: Pornography

Reputation: Minimal risk

Obviously there is no pornography on my website, so is there anything I can do to correct this blocking?

Moved from Home products to Business > Web Gateway for better attention.

Geoff,

You may want to submit that URL for review at www.trustedsource.org.

Once reviewed they'll see that there is no pornagraphy there and recategorize it (which then feeds into your friends proxy).

Chances are, you are using a shared webhost, and someone else on that server may have had pornography on their site.

Hi Geoff,

sorry for the inconvenience. I have contacted our categorization team and asked to review the website.

Hello,

the site has been recategorized. It will take some time until all lists are up-to-date and all changes become visible, but the issue should be resolved soon.

Best,

Andre
