I've look this up and found this srticle from VirusTotal Here and Here
I would block this site and see what happens and then you can issue a Support Ticket as well.
Maybe one of our Forum Members can assist here. TripleHelix have any information concerning this?
The second link displays information about "Passive DNS replication" and a section about "Latest undetected files that embed this domain in their strings". Under that section is a list of "files" with long names which look like gobblety-**bleep**. I discovered that there were hotlinks for each one which end up displaying a list of Anti-Virus providers and Green Checks. It appears that those providers have determined that Storystack is Safe? Or am I interpreting that incorrectly? Please advise.
After looking at the first link some more, I noticed there was a tab for URL. So I entered "http://widget.storystack.com/redirect" and clicked "Scan it". The site came back with a page of Results displaying "Clean site" or "Unrated site". Based on that, it appears that those providers have determined that Storystack is Safe? Or am I interpreting that incorrectly? Please advise.
To me it looks good to go but maybe someone here on the Forum can advise further?
