OIT Blocks Malicious Web Sites

OIT Network Security will begin using a new security tool that protects users from malware by blocking known and predicted malicious domains and IP's from resolving at the DNS layer.  This tool is an add-on to our CleanDNS servers.  As a result of using this security tool, if users go to known malicious domains, they may receive a blocked page that looks like this:

CleanDNS has been in use for several years so users are accustomed to malicious sites being block.  This service enhances CleanDNS by making available a much larger reputation database that is much more real time and thorough.
