Opened: Oct 03, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Category Lookup agent has changed to include the IP in the categorization query. The BIG-IP TMUI does not do the same (Access Policy :: Secure Web Gateway : Database Settings : URL Category Lookup).

Impact

Some websites may be categorized differently depending on if the IP address is passed in or not.

Conditions

-- SWG or URLDB provisioned. -- Run traffic with category lookup in the PRP and note the category produced. -- Run the same URL through the GUI lookup tool or the command line tool.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

None
