Proxy Sites Offer Secret Passage to Myspace

Filed under Network Security

Scary things those pesky proxy servers…Not only is this a problem for college networks but it is a major issue for corporate IT security as well. The majority of corporate networks are now starting to block Myspace. Especially with the recent “Flash banner ad Worm” that hit Myspace not long ago. These proxy sites allow users to basically bypass any web filtering that is installed at the gateway. There are hundreds of these sites and more poping up all the time. Products like Websense and SurfControl can help, however, these sites only get blocked when the products blocked lists get updated or the administrator manually adds the site(s) to a blocked list.
