Webroot blocks a high profile Hollywood media site -- why?

A little strange glitch today.  I tied to go to a site called Nylon Magaznie.  Internet Explorer 10 (windows 8) told me it couldn’t display the page because of a programming error.  I’ve never seen that before.  I went to the main site, but Webroot said it was blocked for possible malicious content, although it did display most of the page.  But McAfee site advisor showed the site (in Firefox) as OK.
Webroot Secure Anywhere rarely tells me that it has to block a site, at least from a more or less mainstream media company. 

Maybe this is just a matter “unsafe code” (running out of memory) in java or C#.
