Web Post Protection Rule - File Type Error

When trying to create a new Web Post Protection Rule, getting the following error: [Password Protected Files] in True File Type condition is deprecated. This condition should be defined as [Unsupported encryption types or password protected file] in File Encryption condition. When creating these rules, as far as I know you don't set any File Encryption conditions, so I'm guessing this is a bug in the background somewhere. Anyone else come across this issue? Is it a bug with DLP 11.4 ? Thanks
