How can I effectively block shortened links on firewall? I can't figure a wildcard url format for them.
One way is to sinkhole then on your dns. Meaning have them resolve to an IP that goes no where or that you block on the PAN. That way the dns never resolves and the user never gets there.
True. Shortened URLs in emails really cause issues to both admins and users . We train our users to look at the link before clicking them but these links are giving them hard time. so, I was looking at blocking them in the initial stage itself.
I wish Palo has a url category called 'shortened links'
