Why is my WordPress site being blocked by McAfee?

If your site is being blocked by a Virus Scanner via it’s web filtering rules then try the following:

  • If your site was created recently, less than 5 days ago, then just wait. It’s possible details like DNS Servers, or others, for your domain haven’t been propagated yet. McAfee uses these details, among others, to rate the safety of your site.
  • If you’re still experiencing problems, navigate to https://www.mcafee.com/threat-intelligence/domain/default.aspx and replace the #NoData (i.e. URL fragment marker) with your domain (i.e. ?domain=mydomain.com). In the McAfee page review what is wrong.
