Recently I've noticed one of our regions is adding (on the Content Tab) URLs to outside websites. Since we are a cloud based system, I am extremely concerned about that site being an opening into our system. Which makes me wonder about a couple questions.
1. Has anyone experienced anything like a security breach via an external URL link?
2. What is the easiest way to restrict people from adding URLs to WTParts or WTDocuments?

I am not sure if this will allow you to do it but did you try creating a rights policy for URLDefinition? It's a sub-type of WTObject.
@STEVEG I discovered that I can shut down all URLs in Windchill that point to external sites. On Page 315 of Windchill Customization Guide (11.0 M030 June 2017 Document Version 11.03.01) I discovered the following.
It looks like it will do what I'm thinking, however I'm not quite sure just yet I want to turn them off completely. According to the PTC tech I talked to, any previous URLs would simply not work if I did this. I'm just not sure what sort of security hazard external links might be.
Our Cyber Security person asked these questions. I think I'll create a PTC ticket and ask them.
Since you are adding several URLs to various external sites it is important to check :
