it looks like ip-api.com is blocked

the domain ip-api.com is used by azure to translate public ip with geographical locations
I noticed that when launching some power script form azure/office365 from a pc behind a firbox it fails.
The cause is that the connections to this domain is blocked and listed as botnet...
I hope it is not actually part of a botnet....

    Hi @g.bonvecchio@basenet.it
    There are multiple detections of trojan CnC based traffic via that IP and FQDN, with many detections occurring today (April 17.)
    If you rely on that service, I would suggest contacting the host and requesting they look into the issue as it appears legitimate.
