I have been told that the current website http://apac.getac.com/ is currently being blocked by government departments computers. Anyone able to access it who works for a government organisation to confirm, and whether it gives a reason for the block? I can't work out why it would be blocked as a Sucuri scan shows it to be clean.

 I presume it is due to the the server location as it traces to taiwan, or the site is in an IP range that they have blocked for some reason.. But I can access the site fine on telecom.

Excellent! I have some company there then. I tweeted about Isis the other day. I was actually referring to these guys, but I suspect our monitoring systems aren't sophisticated enough to figure that out. :-)

Actually been told that the website may have a virus on it or malware which maybe causing the problem. So a mod may want to remove the link.
