Website Falsely Flagged by uBlock Origin and ProtonVPN Netshield Filter

This issue has been tracked since 2022-08-15.

When trying to visit "noscript.net", ProtonVPN's Netshield blocks the site from loading (two separate browsers were unable to connect to the server until I disabled Netshield).

When attempting to connect to "https://noscript.net/faq" from the DuckDuckGo search results, uBlock Origin stops the site from loading due to a filter in the "Phishing URL Blocklist".

It seems that the term "noscript" was falsely flagged. There are other URL's contained in the rules list that have "noscript" in the URL. Two of them are from sites I am unfamiliar with, and are probably correctly flagged. But I think this may have led to the noscript site itself also being flagged, leading to a false positive.

Here is a link to screenshots showing the "Phishing URL Blocklist" rules in uBlock Origin that contain the term "noscript":

And here are a couple screenshots showing what happens when trying to visit the site:
