    Google Instant Preview Leaks Adult Images without enforced Safesearch

    Has anyone tried googles new instant preview?

    This is some filler text so that the problematic word does not still appear in the text preview of this thread in order to prevent overzelious LA filters from blocking entire pages of the site because of it

    change your search mode to safe filter off and search for the word porn, and then click on the magnifying glass on the result,

    works inside school

    google is now completely blocked inside out school until we can block the instant preview

    You shouldn't be able to turn search filter off in a school. It is enforced safe search at our place. What filtering software do you use?

    RM SmartCache can't do it, but on the other hand, I'm pretty sure the dynamic content filter will kick in just by searching for the word 'porn' and block the results page.

    we are using LA provided filtering, some cisco appliance i have limited control over. only requesting specific domains urls to block. we have isa in house which i use to block stuff locally based on AD group membership

    In our LA Google.co.uk is forced to safe search, but not .com - we're whitelist though so block everything but .co.uk

    Argh. Poor quality filtering that can't force safesearch.
    I've been in meetings all day (yuk) but nile_c has been looking at preview... it *might* be blockable.. i'll ask im.

    i'm installing TMG as were licensed 4 it, it just was later in my upgrade plan.

    apparently quite easy to enforce safe search as it has built in function for it.

    I used a blacklist filter with *safe*off* and that seems to work. I know it may cause problems occasionally with other searches but prefer that to the alternative.

    Wait, my mistake - if you try and set SafeSearch to off in Google's settings, the SmartCache blocks the request to set the cookie. Not sure if it would be possible to set the cookie some other way, but it does at least make it quite difficult.

    There will be a new Guardian category for this tomorrow underneath the 'Search engines' group.

    We are having problems with google images at the moment, strict safe search is supposed to be enforced through the filtering but when I test it - it shows moderate. This has resulted in kids accessing porn - needless to say it has been banned!

    We've had similar issues, which have lead to us removing our exception from the LEA blocklists so it is now blocked. We use Bing instead for image searching.
