      Description

      Currently, no one on my campus can download minecraft; the download site, s3.amazonaws.com/minecraft, has been malware blocked. I have put an image of the block in the attachments. Upon speaking with campus about the block, I received an email that I also attached. The email confused me, slightly, as the email said that the problem is with Norton but the campus website says that the problem is with DNS-BH at http://www.malwaredomains.com/wordpress/?page_id=2.
      (sorry for no hyperlink, first time on this site)

      I do not know who you should contact, if not both Norton and DNS-BH. I do not believe that my University is the only organization that is blocking Minecraft download, if it is on a list.

      My friends and I, on campus, would greatly appreciate if you worked towards removing Minecraft's false positive from the list so that we may resume playing.

      Thank you.

      PS: TeLNeT@stonybrook.edu does not go anywhere, you have to contact supportteam@stonybrook.edu
