Arrrrrr Trend Micro Office Scan

Okay, so this piece of shit program is pissing me off. It blocks sites like www.2600.com, which has *no* harmful content on it. When inquired on the reasons, they have not yet replied (I sent mail from my company account a few months ago). I guess it’s kind of like the government blocklist for “child porn” sites, which can’t be viewed, can’t be challenged, and can only be changed for the worse.

So how to defeat this stupid piece of shit software: Ping the address you want to visit, and type in the ip address instead of the DNS name. Presto. It’ll still complain if the site links to images or other stuff using the DNS name, but you’ll be able to view the content. Office Scan 0, Me 1.
