Issue/Introduction

Microsoft URLs getting categorized as 'Compromised Sites'.

For example URLs like the following:

http://admin.teams.microsoft.com.admin-mcas.ms/

http://admin.microsoft.com.admin-mcas.ms/

Then the URLs are being categorized properly as 'Technology/Internet'.

The main concern is why in the first place it was categorized as 'Compromised Sites'.

Cause

 

 

Resolution

Initially the URL was categorized by our content filter Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine and the URL was having a low volume traffic.

There is an option on our AI engine to prevent certain URLs from being categorized as 'Compromised Sites' due to its high profile characteristics, so the main domain of the affected URL had been included to prevent similar issue in the future.
