Unwanted Web Sites entries

Recommended Posts

OA 4.5.1.431 Premium

The Page Web Sites keeps collecting Trusted entries of different sites.

Under Options I have checked "Ignore OA web sites list"

Even if I delete those entries, new ones appear.

How do I get rid of this junk I did not ask for?

Seems, OA is going into spam business...

Sites can be added to Web sites as Trusted for the following reasons :):

  1. The site has a trusted synonym (alias)
  2. The site resolves to your DNS server or gateway, or to a Trusted computer in Firewall -> Computers
  3. The site resolves to an IP that is already trusted (IP's are Trusted if they resolve to a Trusted site)
  4. The site matches an entry on OA's internal whitelist

[*]The site matches an entry on OA's internal whitelist

Is the whitelist you have mentioned above the same of this option: "Ignore OA web sites list"? or perhaps is it another one?

I'm asking because disabling it and deleting all the trusted entries has no effect. Sites such as "download.windowsupdate.com" and "emsisoft-s.cleverbridge.com" keep being added in the list. Also with the Web Shield turned off...

:huh:

Now, this answer does not help me a bit.

Sites that appear were neither called nor trusted my ME.

I do not care about OAs white list.

If I set a checkmark to "Ignore OA web sites list", OA has no business to override my setting.

This is intrusion into my system.

Yes, that the option I was referring to :)

Some sites are hardcoded directly into OA. The two you mention would be likely examples of this. Sorry, I neglected to mention this in my original post as another possible reason for an entry being added as Trusted.

Regardless of whether you have the whitelist disabled, points 1 to 3 in my original post still apply. These things have nothing to do with whitelist settings.

Dear Arty,

"Ignore OA web sites list" doesn't mean "Don't fill OA web sites list",

so this is in no way an intrusion to your system.

Sincerely,

Andrey.

Andrey I guess what people want to know from you is this... ''is there something they can do to stop sites entering the list?''

If not, does OA plan to change the way this works in the very near future?

Fine.

I don't care, whether Tallemu or Emisoft has done that.

I have used OA for several years.

This license is to expire shortly.

I am not going to renew.

Hi @arty

-------------------------------------

OA or OA++ for me, the best internet security suite in the market.

From the first day of use, i turned off web shield.

WS is very slow, but not slower than others...avira web guard, or kaspersky..etc.

-------------------------------------

My advice with two layers of protection while surfing:

- WOT ,web of trust in your browser

- ClearCloud DNS

With this,absolutely do not need OA-WS, and you'll have fast browsing.

If we go to 100% against exploit, you can use NoScript.

-------------------------------------

My suggestion is to renew license ;)

On the market is no better solution from OA++...only Comodo fw can compete with OA,but for me it's beta product (forever beta)

-------------------------------------

p.s.

as they kicked mail protection,they must kickout this WS.

I have to agree that if you use OA (even the free version) And WOT in your browser (plus a bit of common sense) you will be protected.

Malware won't come to you... you will go to it.

Jose.
