Can you let us know what version of MEG 7.0 you are currently running?
MEG 7 should be able to treat PDF files, indeed this is the case in may deployments. May I suggest that you provide details on a support request for further investigation? You can create a support request at https://mysupport.mcafee.com/Eservice/Default.aspx
Hope this helps.
|Updatable Component Versions|
Thank you for your reply. Can you check on the 'About this appliance' section (link on the top right corner) and confirm what patches you have installed? Current version for MEG 7.0 is Patch 3. A number of issues with content processing are resolved on the patches released to date, hopefully this will help.
McAfee updates the 3rd party plug-in used for content scanning with each patch in most cases. We would recommend to update to 7.0.4 if still on 7.0 and 7.5.1 if on 7.5. We also have 7.5.2 in limited release at the moment which we hope to have released soon to web.
If the PDFs are still detected as corrupt then we would recommend to quarantine the original message then open a SR with support so they can test the sample in support to verify if the same message can pass with the latest patch level.
