Access Denied by security policy

June 25, 2009  |  Saudi Internet

Something odd is appearing to Internet users in Saudi Arabia, random sites for no reason give the following error:

ERROR. Access Denied. Access Denied by security policy.
The security policy for your network prevents your request from being allowed at this time.


Other people on twitter reported they have the same issue and all of them are subscribers to Saudi Telecom (STC).
