Time-of-Click Protection Rewrite URL changed?

BWCBWC Cybersecurity Overlord ✭✭✭


did SonicWall changed without Notice the URL for rewritten Links when Time-of-Clock (ToC) Protection is enabled?

In the past it was but now it seems to be which is not cool because something like this has to be communicated to the enduser and their IT staff. This is valid for the same Firmware Version, I recieved both URLs with that Firmware stamp.

The icing on the cake is the privacy/paranoia driven Registrant Whois Information for that domain in question:

Registrant Name: Registration Private
Registrant Organization: Domains By Proxy, LLC
Registrant Street:
Registrant Street: 2155 E Warner Rd
Registrant City: Tempe
Registrant State/Province: Arizona
Registrant Postal Code: 85284
Registrant Country: US
Registrant Phone: +1.4806242599
Registrant Phone Ext:
Registrant Fax: +1.4806242598
Registrant Fax Ext:
Registrant Email:
Registry Tech ID: Not Available From Registry

No affiliation to/with SonicWall, why on gods earth should that be trusted?

Can someone of the PM please enlighten me what's that all about?

    Hi @EnaBev any word on this? The whole thing leaves a bad impression.

    It seems that for each region a separate Domain got registered on Sept 4th 2020, sonicurlprotection-(ams|fra|mia|sjl|tko).com.

    Looking forward to get an explanation.

    @BWC I will message you directly on this to explain the why.

    Anything else would have to be addressed by PM.

    Thanks @David W (as always) for the message, I shared my opinion how it got handled to you, maybe you can forward it up the chain, because there is plenty of room for improvement.

    If there is broader demand for clarification the Community has to speak up and SNWL has to deliver.
