Anyone use websense webfilter?
Anyone else using websense webfilter?
we had an issue with our VLE getting blocked by one of our custom filters.
it was not in out list of sites, so after getting it looked at by support it turns out that in a custom list a * wildcard is added to the start and end of the entry.
so we have
ning.com ( which is a blog site )
But websense will see that as
so it will match itslearNING.COM
now imagine you have a custom allow for bbc.co.uk
that's actualy *bbc.co.uk*
so if someone registers
and puts a proxy on it then it will allow them through!
Seems a bit insecure to me!
