Threat ID for Unsafe Characters in URLs

Is there a Threat signature to detect Unsafe/ Illegal characters in an URL? I've searched the ThreatVault but I couldn't find any unfortunately.

 

For clarity this is what I'm talking about - https://perishablepress.com/stop-using-unsafe-characters-in-urls/

 

As anyone been able to find a signature for this (without using a custom signature)?

 

Thank you

Re: Threat ID for Unsafe Characters in URLs

We do not have a broad or generic Threat ID to cover "unsafe" characters.  If there are particular URL related characters a customer would like to block our recommendation would be that they create their own custom signature to detect, alert, block, etc.
