pfblockerng-devel causing browsers security alert



  • I've installed pfblockerng-devel but having a problem with browsers throwing an privacy/security alert on google ads and other links tied to google services. It appears that it's breaking HTTP Strict Transport Security. I want to continue using pfblockerng but is there a way to fix this? Any help is appreciated!

    Impossible. Installing pfBlockerNG-devel 2.2.5_3 does not change the behaviour of the router/firewall/pfSense.
    You've done something else you didn't mention.
    Like selecting feeds that contain many "Google" IP.

    Yep, impossible for pfBlockerNG to replace the info coming from from these https sites.
    This (example) :

    3528db45-0bef-438e-a64e-2d657cea8b20-image.png

    is the best you can get.

    edit : and think about it : you do not want it to get any better, because the price to pay would be huge - like breaking the entire Internet security.

    That's because you enabled rules that blocks those domains with ad content ... you can go to Firewall > pfBlockerNG > Alerts then scroll down to DNSBL then look for the domain you wanted to visit and click the plus symbol (+) to add to whitelist.
