    One user working at a university had issues and came across the following:

    “Security Warning: Deceptive Website form.jotform.us has been blocked by the UVA Information Security, Policy and Records Office (ISPRO) for hosting phishing, malware, or other malicious behavior.”

    UVA is the University of Virginia. I'm assuming they are blocking all content from this site and I can only guess other institutions are also blocking it.

    What would cause this problem and what can be done to remedy it?

    It may just be your schools network blocking that URL.  Since this looks like a warning specific to your schools network, it is very likely you would need to contact your schools IT department to have it remedied.
