The Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall is a software used to protect your operating system from leaking important data though e-mail (e-mail filtering,) as well as blocking websites (web filtering.) Usually schools, corporations, institutions or parents use this type of software to block websites deemed inappropriate because of their content, high flow of traffic or from taking too much bandwidth. Unfortunately, when using Barracuda some helpful websites may end up getting blocked. If you need to access such websites, there are several steps you can follow to bypass a Barracuda Firewall.
