Summary

The logs show the following entries when the URL is uncategorized:

<1060> Get URL Category returned [0], with category 0 == [0]
<1060> Categorization will be skipped because the engine could not categorize the URL [http://www.myurl.com]

When the [iwss]\no_web_access parameter in the urlfcIFX.ini file is set to "No" and there is no hit in the cache, the URL's category is set to "90" which is categorized as "Unrated".

<7056> Cache hit of [90] for [www.myurl.com/]
<7056> Get URL Category returned [1], with category 0 == [90]
<7056> URL Filter violation for URL [http://www. myurl.com/]
<7056> Sub category is [90 :Unrated], Trend category group [Others]

You may also go to Trend Micro Site Safety Center to check the URL's category.
