Summary

Users can visit a site whose URL is prohibited by IWSS, by using the Google translation tool. To replicate this issue:

  1. In IWSS, deploy URL filtering policies for a category that you would like to block (e.g., gambling).
  2. Verify this by using a browser that points to IWSS. You should be unable to access the URL in the prohibited category and IWSS should return a restricted URL message to the client browser.
  3. Go to http://www.google.com.
  4. Click Language Tools.
  5. Under the Translate section, select the Translate a web page option.
  6. Enter the same URL that was previously blocked.
