Dynamic URLs in Facebook are a leading threat vector, as we have all seen prompts about photos and videos with links to view them. “Is this a picture of you?” is a link often sent to friends from a compromised user account. One click leads to a video codec or software update installing malware on the friend’s system only to repeat the cycle to their circle of friends. WebPulse follows dynamic link chains and utilizes over 16 different threat detection technologies to detect malware downloads and block them for Facebook users. Full visibility into web threats, content and traffic patterns are provided by Blue Coat Reporter 9 with dashboards and drill-down analysis, plus 50+ pre-defined, easily customizable reports.
