eBay.co.uk blocked for smelling phishy

OpenDNS makes oopsie

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Online tat bazaar ebay.co.uk was blocked for much of yesterday because OpenDNS wrongly labelled auction pages on the site as phishing pages.

Individual items, with addresses starting cgi.ebay.co.uk, were unavailable to anyone using the system, or using an ISP which uses the system.

Instead surfers saw this error message:

"Phishing Site Blocked Phishing is a fraudulent attempt to get you to provide personal information under false pretenses."

Several threads in forums reported the issue and explained how to manually restore access.

The problem has now been fixed, according to a poster in OpenDNS's own support forum. The message said: "This issue has been resolved. We apologize for any inconvenience and have taken measures to prevent this from occurring in the future. You may need to clear the cache and flush your resolver before reloading the site." ®
