Anti-virus blade question...DNS phishing

I have inherited a Check Point 2200 Firewall and now trying to learn as much as I can.  Is this the correct forum to ask questions?  If not please point me to the correct one. 

Today, I saw an entry in the logs for the Threat Prevention/Anti-Virus log that mentions detection of Phishing.djutth.  I believe this is a DNS Malicious request (DNS Phishing) but was not able to find anything specific.  My concern is that it shows as detected, not prevented.  In addition a small amount of traffic went out (177 KB).  Can anyone educate me on this?

For this question, it's the correct space Smiley Happy

Generally speaking, you can look up threats here: ThreatWiki | Check Point Software 

While I wasn't able to find this specific threat here, many of the phishing protections are considered "Low Confidence."

Depending on how you've configured your Threat Prevention policy, these protections may only trigger a Detect action versus a Prevent action.
