Hello,

my desktop in a dedicated VLAN see some of its DNS requests flagged as Phishing when my desktop request the DDNS set on the Firewall.

The log traces are:

2023-03-01 09:34:43

info

DNS Filter

DDNS hostname:Phishing

desktop IP:37489

DNS Server IP:53

DNS BLOCK

The configuration is:

DDNS hostname set on the WAN1 interface, updated automatically.

Custom DNS servers as 1 and 2 in the “System > DNS > Domain Zone Forwarder” menu.

In the VLAN configuration,

  • first DNS server is ZyWALL
  • second and third DNS servers are the one defined in the previous menu

I'm not sure why my desktop requests my public IP, but I would say these requests are legitimated.

Is it normal they are blocked by the DNS Filter?

Kind regards

Accepted Solution

    Hi @mat17

    If you want to ensure which URL is defined as unsecured by the DNS thread filter, you can Go to Monitor > Security Statistics > DNS Thread Filter and enable the "Collect Statistics" function. The statistics will be recorded and displayed, including the URLs that have been marked as unsafe by the DNS thread filter.

    If you confirmed URL is safety, you can add URL into allow list.

    And you can submit a correction request to the database server to change the category of the URL.
