Questions and answers

What should I do if I see a Web page Blocked message when browsing the internet on the Sussex network?

If you are browsing the internet within the Sussex network (either on an IT Services computer or your own device) you may see a warning message similar to the one below:

Block or continue message

If you see this message, the University network has determined that the web page you are attempting to visit is malicious, either part of a malware or phishing attack or some other type of resource designed to control your device or steal your personal information.

If you are sure this URL is not malicious, you can click Continue.  This will be logged.  Please take great care about clicking Continue if you see this message, especially if it has been classified as "phishing".

If you believe a site has been wrongly identified as malicious, please report this to the IT Service Desk and request that it be added and an exception to the block.
