Any ideas about the future or wath we can already do ?
I'm going to take a stab at this and say that if you set up a block .OCX files action in a File Blocking Profile on your PAN device you should be able to stop ActiveX Controls. Here is what I found on-line about .OCX files.
An OCX is an Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) custom control, a special-purpose program that can be created for use by applications running on Microsoft's Windows systems.
Microsoft now calls an OCX an ActiveX control, the component object under Microsoft's set of ActiveX technologies, of which the fundamental concept is the Component Object Model (COM) and, in a network, the Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM).
Maybe someone at Palo Alto can add to this.
