Detailed description of Web Control categories

Recommended Posts

I am looking for documentation that gives more detail about what is included in each of the Web Control categories and subcategories.  The majority are self explanatory but there are some that are not clear to me.  i.e.) 'Parked' subcategory under 'Security and Malware'.

 

Also, is there documentation on recommended or default classifications of 'Group 1', 'Group 2', 'Group 3' groups in Web Control?

Website categorization is provided by another company, not by ESET. As for groups 1, 2 and 3, categories in these groups can be edited after clicking "Edit group" in the Web control rules editor. Subsequently you can use these groups to create blocking or allowing rules.

The new online help has some descriptions of what the categories mean: hxxp://help.eset.com/

 

Excerpt from hxxp://help.eset.com/ees/6/en-US/

 

Here are some examples of categories that users might not be familiar with:

Miscellaneous – Usually private (local) IP addresses such as intranet, 192.168.0.0/16, etc. When you get a 403 or 404 error code, the website will also match this category.

Not resolved – This category includes web pages that are not resolved because of an error when connecting to the Web control database engine.

Not categorized – Unknown web pages that are not yet in the Web control database.

Proxies – Web pages such as anonymizers, redirectors or public proxy servers can be used to obtain (anonymous) access to web pages that are usually prohibited by the Web control filter.

File sharing – These web pages contain large amounts of data such as photos, videos or e-books. There is a risk that these sites contain potentially offensive material or adult content.

 

NOTE: A subcategory can belong to any group. There are some subcategories that are not included in predefined groups (for example, Games). In order to match a desired subcategory using Web control filter, add it to your desired group.
