I had to disable the Web shield.

Not sure I liked doing that.

Why is this app blocking an important and good web site.

Thanks

Hi, there was indeed a false positive detection JS:Agent-DWX [Trj], which has been disabled. This detection only triggered on some computer specifications (Mac mostly), which was the reason for the number of affected users to be very low. Please wait for the next VPS update and let me know if the problem persists!
