Blocked by Capture Client Web Protection Filter - but why?

BWCBWC Cybersecurity Overlord ✭✭✭


in the recent days I experienced a few messages like this:

The following location was blocked: '' for this process: '' (Filter: 'Capture Client Web Protection Filter')

But I cannot figure out what was the cause of having this location blocked. Even some internal hostnames got blocked for no obvious reason.

Any more information on this available?

    Did you ever get this resolved? Turning the log level up to debug should let you see why the site was being blocked.

    @DominicWild the issue got resolved by uninstalling Capture Client, all good now. This might not work for all 😉

    I have a single Endpoint left with CC. Whenever it happens again I'll try to turn on debugging, which is a total intuitive thing to do in such a case. CC Web Protection Filter was a constant cause for problems.
