Why is a website appearing as malware in IP Scan?

MetaDefender Cloud's IP Scan aggregates information provided by 3rd party IP reputation sources. MetaDefender Cloud does not directly assess IP addresses. If one of our listed 3rd party IP reputation sources flags an IP address, that's what MetaDefender Cloud will report.

Since our customers depend on our site to accurately report the results of these 3rd party IP reputation sources, we (OPSWAT) do not want to overwrite these results with our own interpretation. Our suggestion is for a site owner/administrator to request their hosting company to work with the IP reputation source to determine definitively why your site is appearing as malicious and what can be done to prevent it from appearing this way.
