Description

  • Content Filter (squidGuard)
  • Blacklist in use : URLBlacklist.com

The global whitelist isn't working, this problem seems to not appear with other blacklists DB (as Shalla or Touluse)

Making some test and analisys I found that urlblacklist.com downloaded also a whitelist and in the squidguard.conf file there is just the downloaded whitelist and not the global whitelist of nethserver.
There is a sort of override of the nethserver's whitelist.

extract from squidguard.conf with urlblacklist.com DB:


dest whitelist {
      domainlist /var/squidGuard/blacklists/whitelist/domains
      urllist /var/squidGuard/blacklists/whitelist/urls
      logfile urlfilter.log
}

extract from squidguard.conf with Shalla DB (no problems in this case) :


dest whitelist {
      domainlist /var/squidGuard/blacklists/custom/whitelist/domains
      urllist /var/squidGuard/blacklists/custom/whitelist/urls
      logfile urlfilter.log
}

To avoid any problem It should be enough to rename the custom whitelist with a name not present in any blacklist, for example : neth_whitelist, neth_blacklist ...

Installed blacklists from UrlBlacklacklist.com, custom whitelist enabled in the filter section:

the whitelist section taken from urlblacklist.com does not appear in the squidGuard.conf

[root@vmdavide67 ~]# grep -i whitelist /etc/squid/squidGuard.conf
dest whitelist {
      domainlist /var/squidGuard/blacklists/custom/whitelist/domains
      urllist /var/squidGuard/blacklists/custom/whitelist/urls
        pass whitelist  !blacklist  !in-addr  !builtin  !pers  !whitelist  all

after installing the updated packet squidGuard.conf has the right configuration:

[root@vmdavide67 ~]# grep -i whitelist /etc/squid/squidGuard.conf
dest whitelist {
      domainlist /var/squidGuard/blacklists/whitelist/domains
      urllist /var/squidGuard/blacklists/whitelist/urls
dest nh_whitelist {
      domainlist /var/squidGuard/blacklists/custom/whitelist/domains
      urllist /var/squidGuard/blacklists/custom/whitelist/urls
        pass nh_whitelist  !nh_blacklist  !in-addr  !builtin  !pers  !whitelist  all

and the content filter works as expected.
