Subject: Filtering Inbound
Does anyone out there filter incoming URLs for hostile contents,
and if so
are commercial products which do this.
For the latest Microsoft Internet Explorer bug
(http://microsoft.com/ie/security/powerpoint.htm) and the previous one
(http://cnnfn.com/digitaljam/wires/9608/16/microsoft_explorer_wg/) we at
NetSolve have setup filters in the product we use in our managerd
internet security service to allow customers to block incoming traffic
from possible hostile sites or even block all outbound MSIE connections
until bug fixes can be installed.
The product we use is the WheelGroup, Corp., NetRanger. More
information on the product and our service can be found at
http://www.wheelgroup.com and http://www.netsolve.net respectively.
