    Secure Data Transfer System

    Been having problems with the Secure Data Transfer System thatís used to download CTF files and such like.

    The problem is that staff donít realise that when they see a gold bar appear at the top of IE they need to click it to download the file. I was handed a paper today that they printed from teachernet that explained how to turn off the file prompting but as itís a security feature Iím reluctant to do that. Iíve added the address https://securedatatransfer.teachernet.gov.uk to the trusted sites list but the file prompting continues. What else can I do?

    You could disable the prompt for trusted sites, set the security level to custom and disable the automatic prompt for downloads.

    I would block people from adding sites to trusted. Do like teejay says (using GP).

    Anything *.gov.uk is safe. Just thinking ahead

    Illegal pharmaceutical ads infiltrate gov, edu sites (again) ? The Register

    apcalis tadalafil site:.gov.uk - Yahoo! Search Results

    http://search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=...t-501&ei=UTF-8

    Initial link may be NSFW, second link searches .gov.uk domains for compromised pages and find 77 results, third link searches .sch.uk domains and finds 18 results.
