Therein lies the question - Is this something you want on your system?
What is Malwarebytes telling you it wants to do with it?

Based upon the original screenshot of the Malwarebytes dialog box, this strikes me as Malwarebytes realtime protection blocking the completion of navigation to and loading of another website (not specified in that message) because it contains links that either would or could install the loathsome PUP.

The initial text says: Website blocked due to PUP (emphasis mine). I take that as meaning exactly what it says, and that the website that is being blocked is sketchy to begin with. It's trying to prevent you from even "the near occasion of infection."

This does not look like an actual PUP (as in installed on the system) identification dialog, as those always offer the option to remove.

Nothing if you don't need to get to the site. If you do, I would submit a trouble ticket to the folks at Malwarebytes documenting exactly what you did at the outset of this topic and stating you believe that it is a false postive.

I have run www.searchsecureprime.co through the VirusTotal website:
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/467ffd4c9c8e8e7ecb2d7932125e32d100644933105e8f3eb5ec44e1ed533d4a/detection
and not a single one of the scanning engines marks it as bad. All come back clean, including one of Malwarebytes' engines that gets used there.
