Filter Bug Report

I’m a kid with the Kaspersky Safe Kids app on my computer, and I found a bug with how Kaspersky handles internet filtering. Instead of monitoring the requests sent by the PC the same way wireshark does, it makes the browser inject a script that checks the page content. An easy way around that is use the millions of programs for requesting web data.

The app by default blocks VPNs because then you can bypass the filter. Behold, a VPN site:

If you’ll look at the top, you’ll see it’s a browser called DuckDuckBrave, one I obviously made up. The entire app is about 100 lines of code and one Python script. Kaspersky, you should really fix this (or don’t and encourage kids to learn how to code, I’m fine with that).
