    Andrew,
    It should be blocked - I suggest you are missing one or more HTTPS defences - you should use at least cert checking in any environment where proxies are prevalent.

    I thought we already did, but this site was being allowed.

    Where should I check to make sure? (SWG-708 2008p0 final series-7.0 i386)

    Andrew, guardian > filtering > per group settings.

    Block invalid SSL certificates: <tick>
    (this would catch this as a minimum)

    I assume you have up-to-date blocklists - see system > licences

    Thanks Tom. I will double-check.
