Application ID detection URL.Host fuzzy match - false positive



many customers complain about wrong AppID detection:


all URL.Hosts which contain the string "" are detected as "Facebook", here some examples: - don't click it :-) "Potential Hacking/Computer Crime, Malicious Sites" "High Risk" -  "Dating/Personals"



the same for XING (,, Twitter (, Gmail (, etc.


for reliable detection of the application ID the database should be based on Host.BelongsToDomain regex.


best regards
