Re: Blocking phishing URL's

We are using our Packetshaper (Packetlogic) to redirect users to a landing page on campus alerting them they have
clicked on a phishing link. It's a manual process, but I set up a rule and only need to add the url. Works pretty well,
plus I see how many hits the rule gets.

Subject: [SECURITY] Blocking phishing URL's
I've been asked to investigate what other institutions are doing to block access to URL's at the edge (i.e. block
connections when people click on a URL, despite virtual hosting or fastflux DNS).
Feel free to respond privately. Thanks.
