websense....work around?

Looks like they installed this this today and allowing for us 10 minutes on message boards, shopping sites, and other non-work sites So what is the workaround?

I suspect there are workarounds since when I search for it several pages show up...but since websense blocks me from reading those at my work computer Not that I cant walk down to the library or check when I get home tonight....it isnt blocking me totally...it is just giving me what looks like an hour of access per day and allowing 6 visits at 10 minutes as part of my quota...

Do they restrict all sites to that time limit?

If you have access to change your proxy in your browser, you could point at a different proxy. That might get around it.

Otherwise, leave your home PC on and use a site like http://logmein.com to connect to your home pc from your work pc. That's what some of the guys do here.

Or you could get back to work and stop being such a drag on the economy! ;-)

Create or find a web proxy that is not running on port 80 and you may have better results.

You also may find yourself ER'ed for breaking the company policies though.

Subject: When Reputation is No Longer Enough - Websense Security Labs Report

----------------------------------------

Websense Security Labs First Half 2008 Report
If you think the trusted Web sites your employees are visiting are safe, think
again. Attackers are increasingly targeting "trusted" Web sites, with good
reputations, to circumvent traditional security measures and bypass much hyped
"reputation-based" systems to increase attack effectiveness.

The latest Websense Security Labs(tm) research states that75 percent of
malicious Web sites are actually legitimate sites that have been compromised by
attackers. This represents a dramatic increase of almost 50 percent in
compromised sites-sites with seemingly good reputations-over the last six
months.

Attackers are quickly changing their game-are you prepared?

Register today {link removed} for
an informative webcast featuring Stephan Chenette, Websense manager of security
research, who will provide insightful details into the latest security trends
and threats from the first half of 2008, including Web 2.0 security and new
attack methods. Attendees will receive a complementary research report prepared
by the Websense Security Labs team as well as an overview of how Websense
messaging security products now integrate the new discoveries about Web and
reputation data to deliver effective protection from today's blended threats.

Websense Security Labs - 1H08 Report Highlights:
- The pitfalls of relying on reputation alone
- The rise in targeted Web 2.0 attacks
- Spammers get sneaky with CAPTCHA-breaking software
- Enhancements to the ThreatSeeker(tm) Network
