HotSpot login wrongly detected


Recommended Posts


Today we had to connect to guest WiFi hotspot and we encountered this:

Uniform Resource Identifier (URI): hXXp://

Process name: C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe

Event: An attempt to connect to URL

Rule: Blocked by internal IP blacklist

Scanner: HTTP filter

Target address:


As a result, people were unable to attend meeting on time.

Can you please explain why is this blocked and how to prevent connectivity issues in the future?

Not sure whether it's really FP: https://www.abuseipdb.com/check/

Please contact samples[at]eset.com if you believe it should not be blocked.

I did contact them, waiting for response.

But I think (have limited info here) that does not belong to actual organisation that owns the hotspot I believe that they just used/abused this IP address (and addressing) in their INTERNAL network...

Because this IP is owned by Orange and it`s located is Egypt, faaar from country our people had problems...
