I have no problems with https://www.speedtest.net/ using IE11. But I am also in the U.S. and you are in Israel. Obviously, routing to the web site via Internet backbone routing is different for you.

Try using a few different browsers and see if the Eset alert issue persists. If it does in all browsers, the next step is to contact your ISP provider and have them to a line test on your Internet connection. 

I’m kinda scared to enter the website again, eset kept blocking that website , can it do any harm to my pc even when eset blocked it ? It happens only with the speed test website, I tested around 7 different websites and nothing popped up

But again, even if eset blocked that website it count that I didn’t even enter it ? So it cannot harm my pc, right ?

Just out of curiosity, I connected my VPN to a server in Israel and then went to https://www.speedtest.net/. It was slower to connect and download, but I did NOT get any warning from ESET. What I did get was...

I do run ABP on my IE11, so I did not pursue it any further. But again, I got no warning from ESET. I normally connect to a VPN server in the USA and do NOT get this AD Blocker error.

Regards,

Tom

I use their TPLs instead. As such, it would just silently block any ads on the web site and I would have no way of knowing it occurred.

Also AdBlock is a different product than AdBlock Plus. I assume the OP in the other forum posting was using AdBlock and not ABP.

I don’t care if I cannot access speedtest.net I just care that nothing hurt my pc, since I don’t really know these kind of stuff, I want to know if eset blocked that website did anything could hurt my pc even that eset blocked it ?

Eset blocked access to the domain shown. That is all that can be said with 100% certainty.

Based on everything you posted in this thread about the incident, it is my opinion you were not infected by the attempted access attempt to https://www.speedtest.net/ . That is all I can personally state with 100% certainty.

Ok thank you very much, I also did a full scan on my pc and it said 0 threats found and 0 detections

I'd suggest doing an ESET In-depth scan (custom scan, select all items, scan as administrator). See what you get. Then, if you wish to do so, find a 2nd opinion on-demand scanner (there are several to choose from) to double check. Only use 1 real/full time A/V program and only perform 1 scan at a time.

What I will say about this incident is based on @TomFace connection to an Israeli server, your ISP is suspect at this point. Appears it might be performing insecure routing through the Internet backbone. However, more proof will be needed in this regard.

Did a full scan like you said had 0 detections, I can be calm now right ?

Assuming everything comes back clean, I would still watch (for a while) for any weird behavior that is not normal to your machine. Just to be sure.

It's probably not a bad idea to set up a scheduled scan (if you haven't already done so). How often is up to you.

What kind of behavior, and if eset blocked that website why do I need to check for weird behavior ? I didn’t access that website since eset blocked it
