What to do about blocked links?
June 1, 2013 at 12:21 AM
It just started to happen recently: when I click some links in the forum posts my anti-virus (or whatever corporate security software is running on my machine) blocks me from accessing it. For example, when attempting to access the URL from the original post at https://slickdeals.net/f/6063946-Discover-Cardholders-Sign-up-for-5-cashback-at-Gas-stations-from-July-Sept?v=1, I get this message:
You attempted to visit a site that is in violation of [corporate] acceptable use guidelines or may pose an Information Security threat to you and [corporate] assets.[Corporate] IT flags and blocks sites that are known to threaten [corporate] systems, networks and information or contains material that is offensive or illegal.Has anyone experience this? Is there a workaround?
