Comment 34 for bug 95241

Jin,
   I reported this bug originally. What was happening was when surfing
through a Check Point VPN-1 Edge device (haven't check it with
full-blown Firewall-1 yet). SmartDefense was picking up on the "ist"
substring of "feisty" in the user-agent field and identifying it as
IST-Bar adware. I changed the user-agent string from "feisty" to
"festy" and have not had any problems since.
   I also submitted this bug to Check Point but as yet I have not heard
anything back.
