    Default Spy Blocker blocking Tinyurl

    I have recently installed Spy Blocker and today I have noticed that it is blocking Tinyurl.
    I submitted a False Positive report by email to False_Positive@michael.checkpoint.com
    as requested butthe email bounced.
    As far as I know, Tinyurl does not distribute spyware, so can this be changed?
    Thank you,
    Phil

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware

    Hi!please report to ZA technical support: www.zonealarm.com/tsformTinyURL is also used to distrubute spyware. Thisis why is blocked.You can just add it to the allowed addresses and keep using TinyURL.Cheers,Fax

    Thanks, I didn't realise there were any security issues with TinyURL.
    However, I don't think there's any way of adding "allowed addresses" to Spy Blocker.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>You can exclude Tinyurl (as all)from blocking....Go to ZA antispyware tab --&gt; Spysite blocking tab --&gt; and under the acces column select 'allow'.Are you using ZA Antispyware, right?Cheers,Fax

    I'm just using Spy Blocker as a stand alone browser add-on.
