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.
