Block known bad TLDs?

L1 Bithead

My CISO want's to block known bad TLDs (such as .zip or .review) in our Palo. I know how to block specific url(s), but is there any way to block an entire TLD?

 

I'm running into issues blocking *.zip since it will also block legitimate URL traffic that has *.zip* in its URL.

Hi,

 

I am not sure how are you going to distinguish between 'something.zip/download?nowrap' and 'sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla/files/FileZilla_Client/3.13.1/FileZilla_3.13.1_win32.zip/download?nowrap'? .... and even something.zip can have subdomains and sub-subdomains, so you can't work around http:// neither....I think that your best guess is still to go with "continue" for this special category, if that matching of .zip/ does not work out :)

 

regards
