Disabling the Run command on the start menu used to disable the ability
to enter UNCs in the address bar of Explorer.  I don't recall if this
also carried over to open/save dialogues but I want to say that it
did....

Hello again,

 

I am still trying to find a resolution for this... if one exists at all.

 

Appsense does not resolve this and i have spoken to their technical
support about it as well.

Has anyone resolved this security hole ?

 

Many thanks

application dialog boxes

         

        Hello there,

         

        Is it possible to stop users from specifying UNC paths in
application dialog boxes ?

        I.E stopping users saving a document / file to a local drive by
using UNC paths from within Notepad , Word , Excel etc etc

        Client drive mapping is disabled and it isnt always possible to
control the webica.ini on unmanaged devices.

         

        I cant remember if this is possible or not. I thought it was but
after doing some searches maybe i was wrong.

         

        Thanks for your time.
