An .exe file sent per mail in a zip file was not blocked while blocking file type executable for mails.
Is this specific to V19.0?
The sophos AV scanner is capable of finding blocked file types inside of archives. I know for web downloads, as long as the zip file goes through sophos AV it will be blocked. I do not know if the email is the same.Is the email in question being virus scanned by the Sophos AV engine?
Yes, scanned by the Sophos AV engine.
Does somebody has any idea?
online help all versions:
"Sophos Firewall matches policy settings with visible content as well as content of file packages (file formats that include zip-compressed files, for example, docx, xlsx, pptx, odt, ods, odp, odg)."
Thats not working for exe or pdf.
