Is there a place where I can find some example URLs for a given category? Essentially the reverse of checking a URL for its category, I want to input a category and get some example URLs back, for testing. Its easy to test porn, gambling, etc but other categories (profanity, residential IP, etc) are harder, and if there was a place online to look (or in a file where the MWG stores these lists) that would be awesome.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Labs also maintains a test site that has one URL for each category where you can test if any individual category is getting blocked:
Each URL represents one of the category codes in the reference guide.
This one is wrong:
-This is an example URL which should be categorized as a Malicious with a high risk reputation score.
but it's rated Business Minimal Risk -6
Yes, use the _red instead.
For reputation checks, i also use:
Why is it http://www.testingmcafeesites.com/testreputation_highrisk.html is not blocked on our MWG 7.3 even though trustedsource.org shows the site as
|http://www.testingmcafees ...||Uncategorized URL||High Risk|
And our MWG 7.3 is set to "Block URLs With Bad Reputation" URL.IsHighRisk <Default> equals true OR URL.IsMediumRisk <Default> equals true.
Yet the site displays every time.
it's because the site is uncategoriezed anbd your settings for URL filtering are set to lookup the IP address if the site comes back uncategorized.
That's why i use the csm-testcenter.org urls for reputation instead.
