List of known domain names blocked by Kaspersky products

I am putting across a serious note on Kaspersky products blocking domains including Google, Facebook and Twitter. From my experiment, it seems this is true when I am using Google Chrome browser. Have tried to contact Kaspersky via Twitter but am ignored completely. A quick web search on the world wide web reaffirmed that this is not affecting just me, but possibly thousands others as well.

The Kaspersky product I am using is Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 with the latest database definitions installed as of today. I am not too sure if other Kaspersky variant products are having similar restrictions too.

Some of the confirmed legitimate domains blocked are the following:

Right now, I have to add the above domain names (will be growing) as trusted urls to be able to consume content normally.

Please let me know any other domains blocked by Kaspersky so I can add them here too to benefit everyone.

On msconfig, switch to the Services tab. Clear the FortiClient Service Scheduler check box and click Apply.Run services.msc on command prompt to open up show all available services.Look for FortiClient Service Scheduler. Switch Startup type to Manual.Restart your computer. FortiClient should not be running automatically the next time round. Hope it helps.

ACJC Birthday Girl Tied Up and Tortured

The two videos mentioned are particularly shocking to me because of two factors. First of all, the perpetrators are practically all females, with a few boys in the background cheering. I never knew women are into such cruelty as well. Second, it occurred in bright daylight at a crowded school canteen - where everybody can see! The poor victim was tied to a chin-up bar and attacked mercilessly. All in the name of “celebrating” her birthday.

The school where all these took place is a well-reputed school - Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC). (No point in concealing the school’s identity as the uniform of the students involved is obvious).

Video captured on the incident was uploaded onto YouTube but was taken down after this matter was blown up.
