Why does my Mobility Client for Blue Coat Cloud show "Tampering Detected"?

<< Back to Knowledge Search



You want to know why the Mobility Client is showing Tampering Detected.



The Mobility Client was specifically designed to prevent users from bypassing the Web Security Service.

If the Mobility Client detects any entries in the HOSTS file which relate to the ThreatPulse (WSS) service (for example: client.threatpulse.net), it enters into tamper detect mode and the user cannot access the Internet.

This behavior is by design.
If you need to disable this feature, contact Blue Coat Technical Support.
