News Groups

 Screen Shot

CyberSieve comes with a large embedded (built-in) database of dubious News Groups that are classified into 15 categories.

Select the categories you consider unacceptable for use by members of your family by clicking on the "Built-in database" button.

To disable the Built-in database, select corresponding groups you do not want to control and unmark the "Enable Built-in database" checkbox. To enable the Built-in database again, use the same checkbox.

To create a list of News Groups that do not need to pass verification even if they belong to the prohibited list, use the "Trusted News Groups List". This option may be useful when a Group is included in the embedded database, but you consider it acceptable.

If you discover a News Group with unacceptable content, and this site is not included in CyberSieve's database, you can use the "Blocked News Groups List" to block this resource.

CyberSieve also provides verification by template. You can enter some word that may be part of the news group's title, and CyberSieve will block access to this resource, as if it belongs to the "Blocked News Groups List". To fill in the template list use the "News Groups Patterns".

All News Groups in the Trusted or Blocked News Groups lists affect only the group that was selected for adding or editing. In other words, these lists are group-dependent. To add a News Group affecting all users, select "All Users" while adding or editing.

When you open any of these lists, you can see News Groups for the selected group of users only. News Groups affecting all groups will be displayed at the end of the list. Mark the "Hide All Users" checkbox if you don't want to see News Groups affecting all groups.

Use "Add", "Edit" and "Delete" buttons located on the bottom of the window to edit the list.

To enter a news group's name you can use either the absolute name, like, or the template, like alt.*, where the "*" symbol replaces any literal sequence.

Every time a news group is filtered the CyberSieve icon of the system tray near the clock changes its color to red. You can see the whole list of blocked News Groups in the "Log Files" chapter.
