    Hello Nenad,

    The blocking can be configured in Policy Manager Console - Settings - Web traffic scanning (Standard view) - Botnet Blocker - DNS query filtering setting.

    This setting controls whether or not to block DNS resolution queries based on the domain’s reputation, which is categorized as safe, unsafe, suspicious, or unknown.

    By default the setting is configured to block unsafe queues. If you think some domain reputation is not correct, please, report false positive on our website.

    Best regards,
