    Very interesting, thank you! I hope you don't mind if I share more complete info here even though it's available at the source, as well. Most especially the different DNS IPs depending on the chosen security level. If it does bother you just say so and I'll delete it.

    FYI Symantec put "Chose" instead of "Choose"! ;) LOL!

    Code:
    Chose your protection policy
    A - Security (malware, phishing sites and scam sites)
    
        Preferred DNS: 198.153.192.40
        Alternate DNS: 198.153.194.40
    
    B - Security + Pornography
    
        Preferred DNS: 198.153.192.50
        Alternate DNS: 198.153.194.50 
    
    C - Security + Pornography + Non-Family Friendly
    
        Preferred DNS: 198.153.192.60
        Alternate DNS: 198.153.194.60
    
    All policies block malware, phishing and scam sites.
    
    Pornography includes sites that contain sexually explicit material.
    
    Non-Family Friendly (for families with children) includes sites that feature: mature content, abortion, alcohol, crime, cult, drugs, gambling, hate, sexual orientation, suicide, tobacco or violence.
