    hi all im having a slight issue here for some reason my students are using this website " www.smvconverter.com " for something..in which i have yet to discover...but when i try and add this website to the block list(its already on it) when i try and go to the website it still comes up...why? if i try a website like facebook it blocks it..but regardless of having this website on the blacklist still doesnt block it...

    how come?

    any help would be great thanks!!

    Because the browser and local resolver caches of all the computers have not been flushed?

    www.smvconverter.com is a CNAME (alias) for smvconverter.com, so better add this to the "always block" list.

    SMV converter is a video format conversion tool.

    Also, my corporate appliance says:

    "Based on your corporate access policies, this web site ( http://www.smvconverter.com/ ) has been blocked because it has been determined by Web Reputation Filters to be a security threat to your computer or the corporate network. This web site has been associated with malware/spyware.

    Threat Type: othermalware
    Threat Reason: Domain reported and verified as serving malware."

    So post (copy & paste) the whole plain text output of the following commands:
    (Trailing dots belong to the command!)
    nslookup   -type=txt   debug.opendns.com.
    nslookup   www.smvconverter.com.

    "server 9.ash" - You're using the OpenDNS WDC location.
    "id 7019911" - This is the network ID your IP address 64.150.137.179 is registered with.

    "Address: 208.69.32.143"

    This is the blocker hit-bpb.opendns.com of OpenDNS, not smvconverter.com's real IP address 68.178.232.100. Therefore this site should be blocked for you.

    If it is not blocked, then:
    - You didn't flush your local resolver cache or browser cache orderly.
    - You have a browser with "turbo mode" enabled using the provider caches.
    - You have a proxy defined in your browser.
    - You're using Google's Chrome, this circumventing the DNS defined by you.
