Not sure if this is the right place to send this, but I figured I’d start here since seems to be hardcoded as a default in the source code for GnuPG.

The company I work for leverages Palo Alto products for security, and we recently observed that was not resolving properly. After digging into it, we discovered that Palo Alto is flagging as a Malware site.

I’ve gone ahead and submitted a request for them to reclassify it as a non-malicious “Computer and Internet Info,” but that doesn’t exactly answer _why_ it was flagged. And it looks like they may have just changed it while I was in the process of writing this email (can be checked at ).

I did observe that at least one of the pool members seems to not be configured properly (if I do a ‘curl -k -H 'Host:'’ it displays a busted Matomo page).

And I’m left wondering if one of the pool members was serving up something that caused Palo Alto to flag

Oddly enough, neither nor was blocked.
