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 ?
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 email@example.com to request a sample, but that list may change often.
