Are the blacklists defined for all computers and users ??

Is there any way to allow the downloading of file extensions blocked in the Blacklists entry list for any specific username, group or organizational unit ??

Thanks

Yes, you can define Blacklists per Policy.

Blacklists are defined by the action for that Severity / Category.  When you create a Blacklist Entry, you can choose what Severity and Category apply for that particular entry.  The default values for these fields are Severity = Minor, Category = Minor Spyware Website, but you can modify them to be any of the values within the system. 

The Blacklist is then applied and acted on per the action within a Policy for the Severity / Category.  That Policy can be tied to a User, Group, Department, OU, or IP/Subnet.
