Sky parental controls break many JQuery-using websites
An 11 hour outage caused by a false positive in Sky's anti-phishing filter; all sites using the code.jquery.com CDN for JQuery would have seen errors.
Sky still appears to be blocking code.jquery.com and all files served via the site, and more worryingly is that if you try to report the incorrect category, once signing in on the Sky website you an error page. We suspect the site was blocked due to being linked to by a properly malicious website, i.e. code.jquery.com and some javascript files were being used on a dodgy website and every domain mentioned was subsequently added to a block list.
