URL filtering - incosistency with online BrightCloud database

Hello.

A while ago website www.rk-celje.si was recognised as malware-site. But in last couple of months the website seems to be clean and online BrightCloud lookup (URL/IP Lookup | Webroot BrightCloud) recognises it as 'Trustworthy' and categorizes it correctly as 'sports'

But PA device using BrightCloud for URL filtering keeps saying it's malware-site. I've tested it with 2 version of URL filtering database and I've cleaned URL cache every time. Why is the categorisation wrong? Is PA overriding BrightCloud info when they find some malware? If so why don't they report that info back to BrightCloud as well?

xyc@PA-3020> show system info | match url

url-db: brightcloud

url-filtering-version: 4394

xyc@PA-3020> test url www.rk-celje.si

www.rk-celje.si malware-sites (Base db)

xyc@PA-3020>

xyc@PA-3020> show system info | match url

url-db: brightcloud

url-filtering-version: 4405

xyc@PA-3020> test url www.rk-celje.si

www.rk-celje.si malware-sites (Base db)

xyc@PA-3020> clear url-cache all

All entries in URL cache removed!

xyc@PA-3020> test url www.rk-celje.si

www.rk-celje.si malware-sites (Base db)
