Do websites get rescanned once flagged as Malicious?

L0 Member

We are starting to see valid websites showing up as malicious due to them being hacked or for some other reason. Once the site is cleaned up however, is it up to someone in the Palo Alto community to request a URL Category change manually, or is there an automated process that checks the website to see if it is still malicious? or another way to ask it, if Wildfire flags a URL/site as Malicious, does it remain malicious indefinitely until manually cleared?

sites get rescanned but it can take a while for them to get recategorised (i think somewhere in the 30+ days)

 

manually requesting recategorisation is quicker
