Google Search Issue

I am having a weird issue and it seems to be in releation to


A user is using google search and as she types in the search box I can see that every keystroke that is entered is blocked and classified as an attack. As we know that google tries to autofill the results and is sending packets back and forth to be helpful. 

The audit viewer shows that the packets are being blocked by the smart filter and the category is appdef_violation and the reason is "Request Denied by smart filter".


All other search engines are fine.

    You probably have to select "Allow uncategorized IP addresses" in the SmartFilter settings.  If you paste the whole audit message we can see what the exact issue is.  If that is not it you should open a Support Ticket.
