    This error is usually caused by hotlink protection – a server setting or a piece of .htaccess code that is supposed to prevent other sites from displaying your images. Some forms of hotlink protection incorrectly flag the plugin’s web requests as malicious and block them.

    You can either turn off hotlink protection on your site, or disable image checking.

    To disable image checking in BLC, go to Settings -> Link Checker -> Which Links To Check and uncheck the “HTML images” box.

    I can’t help you with turning off hotlink protection as that varies wildly from site to site. Ask your hosting provider about it.
