False positives and Facebooks

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am having an issue with a high number of false positives being generated mainly through Facebook, where ID numbers are being incorrectly flagged as CC numbers. Since I still need to be able to monitor the messenger feature of Facebook, is there any way to exclude the main URL with the exception of the messenger one. For example, is there a way to exclude the main URL www.facebook.com but at the same time, monitor the www.facebook.com/messaging/send/ one? 

Many Thanks

Linuxxo,

Unfortunately, When a host is specified in a URL definition, DLP automatically includes the subdomain of this host.. Please see below link to KB90846. 

One way to combat false positives would be to use user based policies, match count scoring, or proximity filters.
