Hello - I have esoft set to block exe, bin, dll and other executables in an effort to prevent malicious software from loading. What I have found is that certain sites will let exe download with no problem (couple of examples I've found are gotomypc.com and coffecup web tools) - most other exe's are blocked by esoft. So my question/comment is - how come? Isn't an exe an exe? Why do some go right through? Now I don't trust the filter as a way to prevent rogue, drive-by downloads from executing.
Is there a better way to prevent users who are 'clickers' to keep the bad guys from loading? I thought if I blocked all executables I'd be OK.
