TMG Malware inspection – blocks google with malware inspection

It looks like the latest update of the malware inspection rules for TMG 2010 blocks google.com, believing it is infected with JS/Blacole.BW.

It’s not as if many people use google… so we’ve got a couple a couple of calls about this so far…. and it looks like a few other people have run into it too.

So – the workaround

Open your TMG console

Navigate to firewall policy | Toolbox | network objects | Domain name sets

Edit “Sites Exempt from Malware Inspection”

add *.google.com

Done!
