paypal.de is pretty obviously a legitimate PayPal domain, registered to eBay and hosted on 188.8.131.52 in eBay’s address space. However, Phishtank thinks that it is a phish.. well, OK, false positives happen.. but the problem here is that it has been manually verified as a phish which really does show a weakness in the Phishtank verification system. It’s not the first time it has happened.
So, if you are in Germany and find that paypal.de is blocked, then this is the reason why.
