Description Brent Fulgham 2017-07-10 14:06:19 PDT
Networking in com.apple.WebKit.Networking may fail in some enterprise/education environments because its sandbox profile does not allow mach-lookup access to CFNetworkAgent.

The CFNetworkAgent processes Proxy Automatic Configuration (PAC) JavaScript files on behalf of NSURLSession clients. PAC is critical for network loads in many enterprise environments.
