Wrong category for a URL in URL filtering blade R81.10

Hi all!

When my costumer try to access to http://www.cype.net/versiones/2023/* the gateway categorizes it as Spyware / Malicious Sites and blocks the traffic according to a rule.

However in URL Categorization | Check Point Software Technologies this URL is categorized as Bussiness / Economy. Could anyone help me with this isssue? Thanks

Just add custom category like below above rule blocking it as high app risk. If you have appc/urlf ORDERED layer, just add it there. If its only one layer, then just make sure rule is, as I mentioned, above one that currently blocks it.

Thank you very much. I have implemented another workaround, but I think that the right behaviour should be GW categorization matches with "Checkpoint Cloud" categorization. Isn't it?

I agree. You should request re-categorization if proof is sufficient. I checked Fortinet web filter and it appears right category.

Different vendors would categorize certain sites differently...based on below, it still shows Information Technology

I have a ticket open for a similar issue. The Check Point URL lookup site shows the category as Computers / Internet, but the Check Point log card is showing the same URL as Spyware / Malicious, High Risk, just like yours does.  Not sure if this is to be expected that the Check Point URL lookup site is not consistent with the realtime URLF blade for the Spyware / Malicious category set.

This may be coming from ThreatCloud instead of the URL Filtering database.
Recommend checking the issue with TAC: https://help.checkpoint.com
