The error message is different depending on whether I put the :80 at the end of it.

FireFox
https://www.woolworths.com.au/ - Access denied error
https://www.woolworths.com.au:80/ - Secure Connection Failed error

Chrome
https://www.woolworths.com.au/ - Access denied error
https://www.woolworths.com.au:80/ This site can’t provide a secure connection error

The same errors are occurring on both computers in the household. And all problem sites are giving the same errors as per above.
This has to be some restrictions from the sites end or if you have any internal firewalls installed.

If I connect using curl in the terminal instead of a browser with the --trace-ascii option to record the GET conversation, the result is that www.woolworths.com.au on port 80 returns a 301 redirection error from AkamaiGHost. Redirection is to https://www.woolworths.com.au on port 443. I obtain the full site there both in the browser and also with curl without a "secure" connection (-k argument).

I wonder if benjik may have a certificate problem.

80 is the wrong port for an HTTPS connection - it should have been https://www.bigw.com.au:443 Alternately, http://www.bigw.com.au:80, but you may find it (server or browser) tries to redirect to the HTTPS connection itself.

The sites seem to be working for a couple days now after I uninstalled the suspicious program and reset the IP address. Fingers crossed they wont be blocked again!
