Before I ask my question I would like to point out I am a web developer who normally uses Stack Overflow and new to Sever Fault, I think this is best place for this question.
I have recently started a new job, and among other things my IT department are reluctant to allow Putty access to the internet.
I am confident that there is a genuine reason for this and am just interested to know their reasons. I can imagine allowing any program access on any port access to the internet could be a security threat, but is there any particular reason Putty could be dangerous.
Thanks in advance.
