Does anyone know whether it is possible to configure the McAfee web filter to accurately categorise/filter sites that have been obfuscated (e.g. put through Google Translate)?
If so how can this be done?
First, recategorize translate.google.com/translate to to the Text Translator category in the Extended List.
Then it should just work.

Recategorize translate.google.com/translate to the Text Translator category in the Extended List isn't working for me because Google Translate is also using translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c
This link is categorized as Anonymizing Utilities
If we recategorize translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c to the Text Translator category the embedded webpage is not categorized anymore
How can we remove the Anonymizing Utilities category and keep the Pornography categorie (in case of translating www.playboy.com)
example of link:
URL Categories: Anonymizing Utilities, Pornography, Text Translators
I have these in my extended list:
And this in my URL Filtering settings:
And when i go to your link, it does a 302 redirect to:
and gets a blocked page:
Thanks. This is working after removing the application Google Translate from the policy.
Now we have a similar issue for allowing download from docs.google.com
URL Categories: Personal Network Storage, Interactive Web Applications
Reputation: Minimal Risk
URL was blocked due to a GTI Reputation and Categorization lookup result: true
URL was blocked due to a dynamic content classification result: false
In the extended list we added docs.google.com/viewer as "Media Downloads" but for some reason it is still blocked because is also connects to docs.google.com and this is and should be Personal Network Storage
Sorry for digging this, but it seems that many sites from google translate have been localized.
http://google.nl/translate is sometimes categorized as Anonymizing Utilities, sometimes as Search Engine, sometimes as Text translator...
We have the same issue with other extensions .de, .es, etc.
Adding google.*/translate seems too generic and too dangerous.
How can we make sure the recategorization will be working properly without adding all possible extensions?
