Anti-spyware Profile Rule category explanation

Does anyone have some document that explain the different categories in Anti-Spyware profiles? They're kind of self explaining, but does anyone have a document similar to the URL category explanation?17098052_10207743432858343_7241440398395006066_o.jpg

Hi @gtomte,

 

I'm not aware of such a list and I wasn't able to find one.  

Like you said the categories are quite self explaining ... I'll try to come up with a DOC for it providing some extra details.

 

Cheers !

Even if the names are in a way self explanatory, it would be nice to have a description of the categories. And, are there any other info or best practices for the categories in this case. Like where is there a chance of more false positives than in other categories, and when to use the different categories to tune the protection in contrast to using any etc. And it is strange that spyware is a categori in a spyware.

Best Practice for Security Profiles can be found here:

You'll also want to  secure from L4/L7 evasions:

Of course, many of these protections are not possible inside of encrypted SSL, so using SSL Decryption is also recommended.
