    I'd request you to wait till Monday, even after that if the website is not accessible, you can open a support case asking them to help you on the recategorization of this website.

    Hi Jasmin,

    Opened Support case, as there wasn't any update on Monday


    Open a Support Case - Secure Web Gateway


    Will see, how long it will take to get at least any information why site still is listed in your database. thanks

    Sophos Labs have worked on the Lab request and they have recategorized this website as Business and removed it from the malware repository.

    So now anyone with Sophos AV can access that website without any issue.

    Virustotal is still showing it as malicious but there we can't change anything. It may automatically be removed or they'll update it as per their procedure.
