Surf protection


Recommended Posts

It looks like this isn't in our Host Rules. You can see that we don't detect it on VirusTotal:


It's more than likely a custom rule that was created at some point (this can happen when you click on an option in an alert), or perhaps a false positive that has since been fixed. Here's how to check if there is a rule for it:

  1. Open Emsisoft Internet Security.
  2. Click on Protection.
  3. Click on Surf Protection in the menu at the top.
  4. Make sure that the option Hide built in list is not selected.
  5. Search for geo-um.btrll.com (or whatever website address the alert showed).

If you find it and it's a custom rule, then you can click on it once to select it, and then click the Remove rule button in the lower-right. If you want to edit the rule to change whether or not it is blocked, then just double-click on the website address in the list you want to edit, change the Implemented action to Don't block, and click OK to save it.

I have no custom rules in surfprotection so not sure what was happening.

Not in the built in list and no more alerts on it.

Could have been a false positive that was fixed before I checked it. Our malware analysts are pretty quick. ;)
