Yes, it's due to a CNAME — I would need to pay to Zoho to add to the list of alternative names to disable the warning.
It's harmless otherwise.

I doubt very much it's due to my site — it's a free hosting, and there
is probably some malware on one of the virtual hosts on one of the IPs
in the block.

These are not dedicated servers, at least where my site is hosted. In
any case, you are saying “reasonable”, as if it's normal to block IPs
on ISP side in the USA. I didn't know it's normal, but times might
have changed.
