SurfControl Rule question - 16.Feb.2006 10:54:29 PM

Got a SurtControl trial running at the mo to see what it can do and have a question about rules.

I want to create a rule that will block anything with sex it in. For example users that go to google and search for sex. Or someone that goes to abcdefghisex.com for example.

I know the second example is stupid but am just trying to state more clearly what I want.

Hope someone can help me

There is a default rule called adult/sexually explicit, enable it and make sure you apply it for all users. This will block most sites that are adult related.

This doesn't block users searching for sex on google as far as my system goes anyway

You can not stop that on google that i know of, because as far as surfcontrol is aware your on a google site not a sex site when you are searching.

Hi there,

Yes this is one the problem we are investigating at the moment as well. We also have surf control web filter v5 and Sunny is right SC will think that you are on a google site and since this is categorised as search engines it will not block this.

If a user searches for say "sex" google will come back with results of sex sites but you may find that when a user visits one of the sites that are listed in the results it may be blocked because then SC will see that you are making a connection to adult content material. I say may because it depends if that site is categorised by SC as being on the adult content/explicit.

The real nasty one is when users go into google images and searches for porn and it displays thumbnails of adult related materials. Googles does have a strict search option which filters this and to a point does this very well but the problem here is that users are in control of this and they can go to preferences and change it to not filter results. If anyone has know a way of modifying the url so that when users do a images.google.com search they are rediected to the strict search url, then i would be greatfult if anyone can pass the info on how to do this.

Ashok.

Why don't you just create a rule in ISA or SC to block images.google.com  site.

I don't want to block it. I just want to block it for certain searches e.g. sex searches

Hi Sunny,

Yeah we got a situation where this is used quite a lot and we're an education establishment so i can't deny the access to images.google.com alltogether, however if i could somehow get that strict search option to be the default url whejn performing any image search then this is something that i can live with as it doesn't come back with adult realted materials even if you type the obvious word/phrases.

I think if you put Google into the Restricted Sites in IE, then cookies are disabled and moderate safe search is the default that cannot be saved to cookies.  I think the little angels can still override it on the URL line.  Not sure if you can filter in the rules, but I know you can filter on any portion or the URL in your live logging and catch them red handed.
