My  security department has  received requests to  unblock   a  couple of sites that are blocked because the  sites are  categorized as Elevated Exposure.   Could someone provide a more detailed explanation of what  this means and what the the potential risks could be for allowing users  access  to these sites ?     

 

Thanks

Elevated Exposure - Sites that camouflage their true nature or identity, or that include elements suggesting latent malign intent.

You can test the blocking at http://testdatabase.websense.com.  As far specific links that is in the database (other than that testing site), you can send an email to suggest@websense.com to request a sample, but that list may change often.
