I have 3 questions for you fellow in-the-trenches proxy admins. I'd be delighted with any input on any or all of them that you can share from your experience.
Why I ask:
With yet another Flash 0 day in the wild that Adobe will be taking some time to fix [ Microsoft and Adobe warn of separate zero-day vulnerabilities under attack | Ars Technica ] and given that Flash appears to be finally moving into the autumn of its relevance [ Firefox 53 will ditch support for plug-in Flash New Firefox versions will make you activate all new add-ons – except one hacker favourite • The Regi... ] .... I'm wondering if it's becoming plausible to block Flash at the gateway except for sites that require it and have a business need. I know off hand a learning management system site we work with would need to be on that whitelist while we flog them to embrace html5.
Thanks so much for any insight or shared experience.
We've just recently blocked UnCategorised, we had been monitoring the activity and submitting all UnCategorised sites to TrustedSource.
Our policy is for the user to contact HR if a site is blocked so it has to be a "Real" business need before it gets to us ( or maybe a VIP ..... )
dcaffrey, Boy I'd love to do that too. How's that been going?
I've long assumed that it'd make my life an impenetrable hell given the rather large universe of uncategorized that seems to be relatively important to a lot of increasingly complex sites. Has the trustedsource universe of Uncategorized actually gotten manageably small? How many users are you supporting? How many sites are you having to submit daily?
Anyone else blocking uncategorized?
