This occurs at Arrisi.com. Arris is Motorola's cable modem sub-company, and is the official site for info on specific Motorola and Arris modems. Sometimes pages load fine, sometimes a page gives me the message " dotDefender Blocked Your Request" 

 

Reloading the page yields the same message, but navigating to the same page from a google search seems to work fine- i.e. page displays and no such message.

 

Also, sometimes pages at Tom's Hardware will give me a "Suspicious Activity Detected!" warning, and require me to enter a captcha in order to see a page.

 

I have Norton Security Suite, and scan fairly regularly with MBAM. I am certain my drives and OS are malware free. Is this anything to worry about?

Is this happening on a private computer or a business/corporate machine?

FAQ: dotDefender

What is dotDefender?
dotDefender is a web application firewall.

It may have been an issue related to your ISP.

I guess I was just being paranoid, as there is no issue now.

 

Website alerts like the ones mentioned make me think of the occasional story about malware infecting routers and possibly other network gear- which is a topic I know next to nothing about.
