Enabling Javascript execution from cloudfront.net

Cloudfront.net is currently (As of 9/2014) used to host some javascript used by the Aspera Connect web browser plug-in.  If this is not permitted, the result is that various elements of Aspera Web transfer applications do not render in the browser and users may be unable to transfer files:

Many of our customer do NOT allow the suggested setting.  In this case do the following:

            add [*.].cloudfront.net or if you would prefer the full Cloudfront hostname, add d3gcli72yxqn2z.cloudfront.net
