URL Rewrite 2.1 for IIS 7 extends its foundation of rule-based URL rewriting with new support for outbound rewrite rules and with new capability to set HTTP request headers and IIS server variables. This new set of features provides administrators with complete control over the URL structure used by existing or legacy web applications that cannot be modified to natively support user and search engine friendly URLs.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
