Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

i search the forum for a way to block downloads over http and https connections with Eset ESS 6.3.

 

  • created a Group with the name "block" in URL Management with the content **.exe
  • under rules i created a URL based action with block and the assigned the group block from URL Management.

I am not able to block downloads the are on a https url like this. Can anyone help me to block to download executables with ESS?

 

Regards, Gobbli

In order to use wildcards to block websites, you'll need to use the URL management feature instead of Web control. To block https websites, SSL/TLS scanning must be enabled.

Hi, thanx for reply.

 

I have uesed Wildcards in the URL Management and enabled SSL/TLS but without success. Can you test it with the url that i have provides in my first post?

For me it works. I've enabled scanning of SSL/TLS and added *.exe to the list of blocked addresses:

Note: I've tested it with Endpoint v5 but it works the very same way with Endpoint v6.
