My company uses FortiGuard (http://www.fortiguard.com/) for web filtering and they have flagged your (ipscommunity.invisionpowerser.netdna-cdn.com/) server as "Spyware and Malware." This means that I am unable to see any images / files on this server.
I've submitted a ticket to FortiGuard to get this server reevaluated. I suggest that you look into this as well.
I am really wondering where did they find malware and spyware on the company forums...
Depending on how they determine a site/domain to fit into one of those categories or not, it could have been due to user submissions as opposed to actual content.
This is a question best asked of them.
It looks like FortiGuard didn't have a problem with IP, but the CDN this forum uses. I'd guess another user of that CDN was flagged for spy/malware, and FortiGuard blocked the entire CDN.
Could be that or could be that some people got prompted about accepting images from it while visiting this site and they thought it was something unsafe. It's best to ask them (FG) directily.
I occasionally run into a URL avatar/photo that causes my MalwareBytes to flag a page. Don't recall it happening here, but has elsewhere.
Blocking an entire CDN TLD seems like a very bad idea for web filtering software...
Imagine blocking all of AWS? You'd lose access to a third of the internet.
